Transfer Balls: Manchester United to make a very surprising move for Gareth Bale
Transfer Balls: The Sunday People says Manchester United will bid for £95m-rated Real Madrid star Gareth Bale.
Really? Does new Real manger Rafa Benitez want to sell a prize asset?
Writes Steve Bates:
Louis van Gaal will make another attempt to prise Gareth Bale away from Real Madrid…
Manchester United’s Dutch boss has admitted a “surprise” signing is on the cards before the summer transfer window closes.
What Van Gaal said was:
“I am not worried about depth of forwards. We still have Rooney. He can play in the striker’s position…
“We also have Chicharito (Javier Hernandez), (James) Wilson and maybe a surprise, you never know. It is a process.”
Mentions of Bale: nil.
But Bates deduces:
And that means the world’s most expensive footballer could be on his way to Old Trafford.
Well, yes, it could. It could also mean that non-one arrives. It depends on how you spin it.
