Man United’s continued interest in Gareth Bale has once again taken up the rounds in the transfer market, as new revelations have come to the fore.
The Mancunian giants have been chasing Bale since quite some time now, as Jose Mourinho feels he is the player that can solve the issue of an out-and-out winger role at the club.
Following the Red Devils’ pursuit of the wide-man over the summer, however, Los Blancos had made it known that Bale is not for sale. But now, it seems they have bent down.

According to El Confidencial, United are willing to pay the European champions up to €75m for the Welshman, but the Spanish outfit seems to be demanding a staggering €90m. Real want to make it known that Bale will not go to Manchester if the value is anything less.
The interesting fact is that the former Tottenham man has been nursing injuries this season, and has failed to make a notable impact for quite some time now. Therefore, with dipping form and injuries, it will be interesting to see what pans out for the player as the season progresses.
If he gets back to finding some form and can stay injury free, Real’s valuation may still hold. But if he fails, on the other hand, then United will have some say in the valuation.
It is reported that Bale is Mourinho’s first target as a winger, and a lot of it lies on what the season holds for him. Jose will hope to win some trophies this term too, in order to get the desired funds in the summer from the club, and also lure in top rated players.
