Premier League campaigners Manchester United have reportedly bidded a huge fee of £100 million to land Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale to Old Trafford next season. Reports gather that United coach Jose Mourinho initially wanted to sign Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann, but has changed direction to England.

Mourinho believes offering Spanish and the European Champions with a world record bid could influence Gareth Bale to make a return to the Premier League.

Bale missed the last six weeks of the season with a calf injury, but made an astonishing appearance in the 2017 final of the UEFA Champions League where Real Madrid defeated Juventus.
