Manchester United will push ahead with plans to sign Gareth Bale from Real Madrid if the Spanish club make him available this summer, according to reports.

ESPN, as quoted by Metro, is claiming that Manchester United are open to making a big-money transfer bid for the Wales international if he were to become available this summer.

The same story suggests that because Real Madrid are weighing up a big-money transfer move for Monaco starlet Kylian Mbappe, the Spanish giants may consider selling Bale to free up funds.

And the article says that Manchester United will be willing to make a move to try to sign Bale if they are given an indication that he is available for transfer this summer.

Manchester United have been linked with a whole host of players so far this summer but the Red Devils have only landed Victor Lindelof and Romelu Lukaku to date.

Jose Mourinho is preparing his team for a return to the Champions League next season after the Red Devils won the Europa League last term.
