The Red Devils are hoping the Welshman wants to stay in the Premier League.
Real Madrid have competition for the signature of Tottenham Hotspur’s Gareth Bale as Manchester United enter the race to sign the 24-year-old, reports the Independent.
Spurs have become frustrated with Madrid’s pursuit of their star and are reluctant to sell to the Spanish giants because of their behaviour in the negotiations.
United meanwhile have remained quiet on the subject, despite it being widely believed the Premier League champions were thought to be interested in Bale. But with the club having failed to make a big name signing as yet and Wayne Rooney wanting to leave, the deal now looks attractive.
The Red Devils and Tottenham have a better relationship with United having made two big money signings from White Hart Lane in the past few years, with Michael Carrick and Dimitar Berbatov both joining the English champions.
With new manager David Moyes at the helm, the club are keen to give the Scot as much help as possible to succeed in the 50-year-old’s debut season at Old Trafford and if that means paying a record fee for Bale, then so be it.
Moyes has a tough task to try and emulate the prolonged success of predecessor Sir Alex Ferguson and any assistance in the transfer market would most certainly be welcomed.
As yet under the new boss only Uruguayan youngster Guillermo Varela has been brought in at the Theatre of Dreams, but after missing out on Barcelona’s Cesc Fabregas signing, Bale would please the United faithful.
