Man Utd bid for £60m Gareth Bale

Manchester United launch £60m Gareth Bale transfer raid on Tottenham

Champions looking to make transfer-market splash that would overshadow the negative publicity of Rooney's looming sale

Manchester United are making a massive £60million bid for Gareth Bale.

Premier League champions United want Tottenham star Bale to be the first major signing of new manager David Moyes' reign.

The move for the Welshman is thought to be one of the reasons why United's vice chairman Ed Woodward is returning early from their pre-season tour of the Far East and Australia.

Spurs are desperate not to lose Bale, last year’s Footballer of the Year, and have so far resisted United’s approach.

But the Old Trafford giants are keen to put the damaging publicity surrounding the future of Wayne Rooney behind them.

They know that buying Bale - who has been linked with Real Madrid throughout the off-season - would give Moyes, his players and the United supporters a huge boost.

And his arrival, as well as continued interest in Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas and at least one other high-profile signing, would soften the blow of Rooney's expected move to Chelsea.

No football player is worth that at this time. Its just the bigger clubs shifting their millions about for whatever reason and is not just to get a new football player.

Absolute disgraceful amount of money when there is poverty all around us.

In these days of austerity, when many people are suffering hardship and benefits are being cut etc why is it that massive sums of money are being passed about by these Champagne Charlies?

From what I gather more money will be spent this season than any other!

Sunderland sold Mig and Henderson to Liverpool for a combined fee of £33million. Welcome to the Premiership.
