The transfer speculation involving Real Madrid star Gareth Bale has continued to build up. The Welshman is believed to be on the verge of leaving the club after having won a third successive Champions League trophy.
According to a report in El Confidencial, United boss Jose Mourinho has given a green signal to the club to get Bale, and they have laid an offer on the table. This, in turn, could make Bale the second-highest paid player, behind Lionel Messi.
United are believed to have offered the former Spurs player a contract worth €35m-a-year which, in terms of wages, is higher than what Cristiano Ronaldo is getting at the moment.

The Red Devils are also hoping to do business for around €120m with the Champions League winners for Bale in the coming weeks.
Jose had earlier stated that the club will not be in the market for an attacking player this summer, as they possess plenty of options.
But given the performances by United’s forward line in the closing stages of the season, he could now be tempted. In fact, other reports hinting at a move for Marko Arnautovic have already been doing the rounds.
The Welshman, who is being targeted by Bayern Munich and Juventus as well, had revealed that he would be sitting down with his agent to discuss the next move, as he was disappointed for not getting the desired game time at Real.
But now, with Zinedine Zidane having stepped down as the manager, Bale may be tempted to stay back, and will hope to impress his new manager for a regular berth in the starting XI.
