Man Utd preparing Gareth Bale loan offer as Ed Woodward grows frustrated with Jadon Sancho

Manchester United are reportedly putting together a package which may entice Real Madrid to let Gareth Bale move to Old Trafford on loan after Ed Woodward grew frustrated with Jadon Sancho talks.

Most of United’s transfer efforts this summer have been focussed on trying to sign Sancho.

Dortmund have demanded £108million for the England international and are refusing to budge from that valuation.

The Red Devils have apparently agreed personal terms with the winger but are growing impatient with the lack of progress.

Woodward has identified a number of alternatives and there is a distinct possibility they may finally sign Bale.

Sir Alex Ferguson, David Moyes and Jose Mourinho all attempted to take the Welshman to Old Trafford during their tenure in the United dugout.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could succeed where others have failed by finally making Bale a United player.

The Sun claims the 31-year-old is open to linking up with the Red Devils after being cast out of Zinedine Zidane’s plans.

Los Blancos would demand an £18.5million fee for a permanent transfer.

But they would also be willing to let the star leave temporarily to get some of his £650,000-a-week wages off the bill.

The Sun reports that United’s offer for Bale will be a season-long loan with the option to renegotiate for a further year.

“If those options arise, it is something I’d look at for sure,” Bale recently told Sky Sports about a potential return to the Premier League.

“We’ll see what happens, we have plenty of time in this transfer window and a couple of others as well.

“Time will tell but mainly I think the reason is that the decision is in Real Madrid’s hands.”

Meanwhile, former Premier League striker Alan Shearer is unsure if it would be a good move for United.

He possibly wouldn’t walk into all the teams in the top six in the Premier League, it’s going to take a wealthy club to be able to afford a transfer fee and a salary to get Bale there,” Shearer told Coral.

“Whether clubs can do that outside the top six remains to be seen, but he’s got to be playing football rather than being sat on the bench.”
