Manchester United tried to sign Gareth Bale, but he wanted Real Madrid move
Gareth Bale was reportedly subject of a massive bid from Manchester United in the most recent transfer window.
Gareth Bale makes his debut for Real Madrid this evening against Villarreal, and French newspaper L’Equipe run with the story that United made a 150 million euro offer for the Welshman.
Carlo Ancelotti confirmed on Friday that Tottenham had received a higher bid than Real Madrid’s world-record bid, “but the decision of the player made the difference.” Ryan Giggs had even personally attempted to persuade Bale to make the move to Old Trafford.
Perhaps they were saving that #7 shirt for Gareth Bale, after all?
