Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho believes that a bid in the region of £100 million will be enough to sign Gareth Bale from Real Madrid

Although Mourinho publicly wrote off the possibility of Manchester United signing Bale by claiming it was ‘game over’, the Portuguese is secretly hoping to reach an agreement for the player.

According to The Sun, the Manchester United boss has asked Ed Woodward to launch a massive bid to sign the world class winger.

It is being reported that Mourinho has been informed about the availability of the Welsh international, but the Red Devils need to wait for 2 weeks for Real Madrid to find a replacement.

As a result, the former Los Blancos coach has demanded that Manchester United do everything possible to land the attacker.

Mourinho had previously ruled out his club’s chances of signing Bale this summer, by stating: “I think so – clearly the club wants him and he wants the club – game over even before it started – everybody knows he is going to stay.” However, recent reports suggest that the tactician is still secretly positive about a potential agreement.

Real Madrid, on the other hand, are looking at Kylian Mbappe of Monaco as a potential replacement, if Manchester United end up signing Bale this summer. Meanwhile, Mourinho believes that he can sign Bale by offering him a ridiculous £500,000-a-week contract.
