In the latest edition of UPTV’s Transfer Daley series, Sam looks at the rumours suggesting Manchester United are preparing an ambitious €150m double bid for Raphael Varane and Gareth Bale.
Man United have been linked with both players for a number of months now but it is unlikely that Madrid will let go of them so easily.
Madrid made Bale the world’s most expensive player just two years ago and Varane is considered to be one of the brightest young talents in European football.
United are on the lookout for an attacker following the departure of Radamel Falcao but the chances of signing Bale are very low.
Meanwhile, the latest update in the Ilkay Gundogan saga has seen him linked with Atletico Madrid.
The German World Cup winner has been heavily linked with a transfer to United but it appears he is keeping his options open when it comes to where he plays his football next season.
Gundogan would be an excellent signing and one that would go a long way to making Louis van Gaal’s side a force once again. However, it looks like the club will have to put some work in if they want to secure his signature.
