Another Sunday and another Gareth Bale rumour. Today sees the Sunday Express claim that new Manchester United boss David Moyes is keen on signing the Spurs star.
According to the report, Moyes, who does not officially take up the managerial reigns at Old Trafford until July 1st has had the green light to break the club’s transfer record which currently stands at the £30.75million they paid us for Dimitar Berbatov.
It seems unlikely that the Glazers would sanction a bid of over £85million to try and persuade Daniel Levy to part with Bale. The Express believe that United “sources” are confident they could actually land Bale for nearer £60million which seems ludicrous when Real Madrid have already hinted that they would break the world transfer record in order to sign the player.
Andre Villas-Boas has already been quoted as saying that he has had assurances that Bale will not be sold this summer. We’ll file this one under another silly Sunday rumour and we’ll all have to put up with it until after the transfer window “slams shut” on Monday September 2nd.
