INSIDER: Man Utd have bid for Bale - but Real Madrid board upset

Manchester United have made an offer for Real Madrid attacker Gareth Bale.

However, Real's board believes the bid falls well short of expectations and there is now disagreement with coach Zinedine Zidane over the Welshman's future.

Okdiario's chief pundit Eduardo Inda, speaking on El Chiringuito, admits the situation is causing some internal tension.

"With Gareth Bale there is a small mess because the leadership wants him to stay because the price is ridiculous and the coach wants him to go at all costs," said Inda.

"United only offers €70-80m - when after the (Champions League) final of Kiev they offered €150m.

"There is another candidate if their (transfer) suspension is lifted, which is Chelsea."
