Manchester United and Louis van Gaal have been chasing a ‘marquee signing’ since the Dutchman arrived at Old Trafford, but to this point he has been unsuccessful in his pursuit. However the could all be about to change, and sooner than you think.
The Daily Mail say that Manchester United are doing all they can to lure Gareth Bale to Old Trafford this month, after the Welsh Wizard expressed his unhappiness at the way Madrid fired Rafael Benitez.
The English publication go on to say that Ryan Giggs could have a huge part to play in the transfer, as Bale has always seen Ryan Giggs as his boyhood hero, and the pair could well soon work together at club level.
There is no doubting that it’d be fantastic for English football if Bale does come back to the Premier League, but it’d be extremely tough to complete any move this big in the January window.
