Manchester United transfer news
Despite recent reports that Bale would be staying put at the Bernabeu, the club do intend to offload him next summer as they make the signing of Reus their priority.
The German international is available for just £20m and has been told that he will be guaranteed a place in the starting lineup as Bale is leaving for Old Trafford.
The Welshman could command a fee of around £120m, beating his own previous record of £85m that made him the world’s most expensive player of all time.
