Manchester United End Pursuit of £600,000 p/w Winger

Premier League giants Manchester United have ended their interest in Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale according to the latest reports emanating from the media in the United Kingdom.

Real Madrid want to sell Bale this summer to fund a part of their squad rebuild and long-term admirers Manchester United were expected to be in the running for the Welsh international player.

The specific publication from the London Evening Standard revealed that the Red Devils have ended their pursuit in favour of younger targets.

It was revealed that Manchester United will focus their attention on younger players rather than 29-year-old Gareth Bale who earns £600,000 on a weekly basis.

Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho is the top transfer target for Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer but the Norwegian tactician will have to wait for a year at least.

England international Sancho is expected to spend the new season at his German Bundesliga club.

Manchester United are targeting young players and they already have one in the bag following the signing of Welsh international star Daniel James from English Championship club Swansea City.

The Red Devils are still after players like Harry Maguire (Leicester City), Aaron Wan-Bissaka (Crystal Palace) and Newcastle United midfielder Sean Longstaff.
