The Sunday Mirror says United will test Tottenhamâ€™s resolve to keep Bale.
And United believe 23-year-old Bale would Âfavour a switch to Old Trafford over a move to Real Madrid if Spurs can be Âpersuaded to sell.
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 Unitedâ€™s interest could prove to be a game changer if Spurs miss out on a Âtop-four finish.
United are prepared to sweeten their bid by Âoffering Spurs the likes of Anderson and Nani â€“ two players Villas-Boas is known to admire.
Can United convince Spurs to sell to them again? Give us your shout below...
