Man Utd will include Nani, Anderson in bid for Tottenham star Bale

Manchester United are ready to make a summer bid for Tottenham star Gareth Bale. The Sunday Mirror says United will test Tottenham's resolve to keep Bale.

And United believe 23-year-old Bale would ­favour a switch to Old Trafford over a move to Real Madrid if Spurs can be ­persuaded to sell.

As well as chasing the PFA and FWA Footballer of the Year Bale, United boss Sir Alex ­Ferguson is set to reward Phil Jones with a big pay rise for his impressive form.

Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas claims he has received assurances Bale will not be sold, regardless of whether they qualify for the Champions League.

But United's interest could prove to be a game changer if Spurs miss out on a ­top-four finish.

United have managed to raid White Hart Lane for Michael Carrick and ­Dimitar Berbatov in ­recent years and ­Tottenham's 'hands-off' messages are unlikely to deter Sir Alex Ferguson.

United are prepared to sweeten their bid by ­offering Spurs the likes of Anderson and Nani - two players Villas-Boas is known to admire.

 Can United convince Spurs to sell to them again? Give us your shout below...
