Manchester United are considering a £200m move to try and bring Gareth Bale back to the Premier League from Real Madrid, according to reports in the British media.

The Sun is reporting that the Red Devils are out to try and bring the Wales international back to England after he dropped a transfer hint about his future following the Champions League final.

The same report claims that Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane did not speak to Bale until three hours after the Champions League final, despite his two goals handing the Spanish side the trophy with a 3-1 win over Liverpool FC.

And Manchester United are prepared to make a £200m move which would hand Bale £650,000 a week in wages, according to the same story.

Bale has found his playing time at Real Madrid restricted this season and he started the Champions League final on the bench on Saturday night.

Manchester United are bound to be linked with a host of players this summer as they look to build a squad capable of winning the Premier League next season.

The Red Devils ended up as runners-up to Manchester City as they ended the campaign without a trophy in Jose Mourinho’s second season in charge.
