According to reports, Manchester United have been told we would have to shell out just £18.5million to sign Gareth Bale this summer.
Further details of the report claim that Real Madrid are desperate to get the Welshman, who currently earns a mouthwatering £600,000-a-week, off their wage list.
According to Mundo Deportivo, United currently lead the race for the player as he is also being tracked by former club Spurs. The Welsh winger is believed to prefer a move to Old Trafford if United are ready to sign him.
The club wants to sign a right winger for manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but it remains to be seen if United will be willing to go ahead with a move for the player.
