Manchester United are planning a huge transfer bid to sign Gareth Bale this summer, say reports in Spain

Manchester United are ready to launch a £94.6m bid to bring Gareth Bale to Old Trafford this summer, according to reports.

The Red Devils completed their first signing of the summer transfer window on Wednesday as they wrapped up a deal to bring defender Eric Bailly to the club on a four-year contract.

United have been linked with a host of attacking players since Jose Mourinho was appointed as the club’s new manager last month.

Bale is said to be at the top of the Red Devils’ wish-list as Mourinho bids to revamp his squad ahead of next season.

And El Confidencial in Spain is now reporting that United are planning a huge transfer bid in order to tempt Real Madrid into selling the Wales international.
