Gareth Bale could still end up moving to Manchester United according to reports. Spanish paper Marca may have claimed that the winger was on his way to Real Madrid but the story has been refuted in the English press.

Under the headline “Real Madrid may want him but United may now hold the key to signing the Tottenham superstar”

The Mail notes:

Interest [in Bale] from Real is genuine, as indeed it is from United. As it stands, an offer is most likely to come from Old Trafford.

It is hard to see Real testing Tottenham’s resistance while Cristiano Ronaldo remains at the Bernabeu and it is worth noting that Carlo Ancelotti also has another direct wide forward currently in his squad, Argentina international Angel di Maria.

As we know, United have flirted with the notion of a dramatic and sentimental return for Ronaldo. Some people in football insist it will still happen. As time moves on, however, it seems ever more difficult for United to pull off.
More possible is that the Barclays Premier League champions harden their interest in Bale himself.

Marca’s claims always had to be taken with a pinch of salt and one could argue the same with the latest report in the Mail. With United still trying to tie up a deal for Cesc Fabregas, signing Bale may not be the main priority but there’s no doubt what he’d bring to the side. Should the Spurs man decide he does want to leave White Hart Lane but doesn’t want to move to Spain, we may just see another twist in the saga. Don’t be surprised if this rumbles on all Summer….
