Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal, it seems, is pretty desperate to sign Gareth Bale from Real Madrid. Reports in The Daily Star have revealed that the Red Devils have now tabled a world record £117m offer to bring the Welshman to Old Trafford.

United were believed to have made a move for the player some weeks back too, but the rumours died down. However, following that, both, the Real Madrid hierarchy and Gareth Bale himself, have made it clear that the player will remain at the Santiago Bernabeu in the times to come. Thus, we will have to wait and see if the aforementioned reports are indeed true or not.

Luis Suarez’s new contract was always suspected to have exit clauses included in it, but the figures quoted are so high that it virtually rules out most foreign clubs from acquiring the Uruguayan.
