Manchester United are prepared to bid for Tottenham star Gareth Bale.

The Daily Star says United will go for Bale if they're frustrated in their pursuit of Real Madrid ace Cristiano Ronaldo.

But convincing Tottenham to sell Bale would be a battle.

However, the Londoners might find it hard to turn down an £80m offer for the 23-year-old, who scored 19 league goals last season, especially as he shows little sign of signing a new contract at the club.
