Manchester United have ended their interest in Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale, according to a report in England.

The Evening Standard is reporting that the Red Devils have turned down the chance to talk to Real Madrid about signing Bale in the 2019 summer transfer window.

The same article states that Bale had been a long-term target for Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward since his move to Real Madrid six seasons ago.

According to the same story, Woodward has instead decided to get on board with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plan to recruit domestic talent in the off seasons ahead of the 2019-20 Premier League season.

Manchester United signed Wales international Daniel James in a reported £15m deal from Championship side Swansea City this week to start their summer spending.

Former Spurs winger Bale is facing an uncertain future at the Spanish giants following the return of French legend Zinedine Zidane as their manager back in March.

Bale has won the La Liga crown and four Champions League titles since his move to Real Madrid in a £85.7m deal from Tottenham in the 2013 summer transfer window.

The Welsh forward has scored 102 times in 231 games in all competitions during his six-season spell at the 13-time European champions.
