David May: There is no chance that Manchester United will sign Cristiano Ronaldo or Gareth Bale

by Ben Topliss

David May believes there is no chance that Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo could sign for Manchester United.

Bale has been linked with a move to Old Trafford following reports he was upset with the club’s decision to sack Rafael Benitez.

Meanwhile, Louis van Gaal confirmed his interest in bringing Ronaldo back to Man United earlier this term. However, former United defender May insisted that United should forget about signing the duo.

“You hear it every day where Bale is coming or Cristiano Ronaldo is coming back and I realise they have to sell newspapers but never in a million years is it going to happen,” he said.

“Don’t get me wrong I would love Gareth Bale to come to Old Trafford. But is it going to happen? I can’t see it. Not right now.”

It is clear that United are in for a ‘superstar’ signing, with the likes of Barcelona’s Neymar also said to be on their radar.

United are in need of a world-class player in order to take them to the next level but it isn’t immediately clear who would want to make the move to Manchester. United aren’t in the best of situations right now and the signing of Angel di Maria last season turned into a disaster.
