According to reports from the Daily Star, Manchester United are preparing to make a whopping £90million swoop for Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale next summer.
Gareth Bale has been incessantly linked with a move to Manchester United over the past few years and it is hardly a surprise to see the Welshman touted to join the Red Devils during the current summer transfer window as well.
What is different this summer though, is the fact that United actually have a realistic chance of signing Bale as it is believed that Real Madrid would be willing to part with the ex-Tottenham Hotspur star if they manage to sign Kylian Mbappe from Monaco.
However, Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane wants to keep Bale for at least another season even if Mbappe arrives and the possibilities of the attacker joining United this summer remains uncertain at the moment.
Now in shock reports from the Daily Star, claims are being made that United are desperate to sign Bale and are currently preparing a £90million agreement with Madrid to acquire his services next summer.
Such agreement taking place well over a year before the transfer actually comes into fruition is unheard of, especially given the huge amounts involved, but considering United’s obsession with Bale, it is hard to categorically rule anything out.
