Man Utd on RED ALERT as Real Madrid prepare for Bale sale

Real Madrid are prepared to listen to offers for Gareth Bale. The Daily Star says Manchester United Louis van Gaal is a big admirer of Bale, and is willing to offer the 25-year-old a staggering £300,000-a-week to lure him to Old Trafford.

Sources in Spain have claimed that Los Blancos boss Carlo Ancelotti is unwilling to sell the former Southampton ace, and has insisted that he is a vital part of the team.

But fresh reports have suggested the former Chelsea boss has changed his tune and is willing to cash in on Bale.

Those reports claim that Ancelotti no longer considers the Welshman a first-team player, and will stick with Isco when Bale returns from injury.

The news of Real's willingness to sell Bale will be a massive boost to United and Van Gaal.
