Man Utd give Moyes green light to go for £150M duo Bale AND Ronaldo
Manchester United have given David Moyes the green light to go for Tottenham star Gareth Bale AND Real Madrid ace Cristiano Ronaldo. The new Manchester United boss has targeted both Bale and Ronaldo - even though they would cost over £75million EACH, says The Sun.
Moyes declared: "Isn't it great that the club says, 'There's no budget here, you go get who you want to get, just go and do it'.
"We are looking at the best players. I do think it's important that we show people we are carrying on the traditions and trying to take the club forward."
United's current record fee is the £30.75m they paid Tottenham for Dimitar Berbatov in 2007.
Spurs wing wizard Bale, 23, and Real Madrid superstar Ronaldo, 28, would cost way over double that, though.
Asked about Bale and Ronaldo, Moyes said: "I will not name anybody but certainly we are always looking at the best players.
"I think we are trying to strengthen in a couple of areas. We are short in midfield. We are also a club which tends to invest in the youth side, so you can expect us to go for players in that age group.
"We are working hard to make sure the first signing is the right one.
"I have been left a really good team and I want to add to it sensibly."
