Real try to tempt United with Bale offer

Manchester United can sign Gareth Bale for as little as €20 million (£18.5 million) this summer, as Real Madrid are desperate to get the Welshman off their books.

The sticking point remains his salary which is €15 million net a season, a figure that no club is prepared to pay right now. However, Real are now considering paying off one year of the two years he has left on his current contract at the Bernabeu, if it makes it easier for him to find a new club.

United have long been admirers of Bale and may be tempted to the Welshman as an alternative to Jadon Sancho, as their chances of striking a deal for the English winger with Borussia Dortmund look increasingly remote.

Bale and Real manager Zinedine Zidane do not see eye-to-eye, with the Frenchman making it abundantly clear that the 31-year old, who remains the highest paid player at the club, does not form part of his long-term plans.
