Manchester United to launch Gareth Bale bid NEXT summer with Real Madrid star to stay put for now

MANCHESTER UNITED will wait until NEXT summer to try and land £90million-rated Gareth Bale, according to reports.

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane admitted there were no guarantees the Welshman would be at the Bernabeu next season.

Bale, 28, is at risk of losing his place in the Real team should the club pursue a world-record transfer for Monaco striker Kylian Mbappe.

However, it is unlikely he will leave Los Blancos in this window.

Jose Mourinho will therefore wait until next year to try and lure him to Old Trafford, according to The Sunday Express.

Mourinho said trying to sign Bale would be “mission impossible”.

United boss Jose Mourinho has already spent £75m on Romelu Lukaku and £31m on Victor Lindelof.

Bale, who in 2013 left Tottenham for Real in a then world-record £85m move, would cost around £5m more than that price.

Mourinho has no problem in splashing out on players he believes to be world class.

He said: “I always thought the problem is not what you pay for these kind of [top] players, I don’t think the problem is what you pay for Pogba, I don’t think the problem is going to pay crazy for Neymar.

“I think the problem is with the other group which is a big group because players like Pogba, there is one or two [big] transfers [like that] per transfer window.

“The other ones are where you have 100 transfers and for me that is the dangerous area of the market.

“Some clubs are paying or they don’t buy because they don’t accept the numbers that are now ruling the market, or to do it they have to go the same levels and for me that’s what worries me a little bit because now we speak about £30m, £40m, £50m in such an easy way.”

Mourinho on Tuesday hugged Bale after United’s pre-season penalty shootout win over Real, and was heard joking: “I can’t buy you because you don’t talk to me.”

Bale has won three Champions Leagues, La Liga, the Copa del Rey, Fifa Club World Cup and Uefa Super Cup during his time in Madrid.
