Manchester United have been backed to sign Real Madrid star Gareth Bale this summer as an alternative to Jadon Sancho.
Jadon Sancho is the priority transfer for the Red Devils in this window but the task of signing the England international is proving difficult. To this effect, journalist Jack Otway believes that Gareth Bale could be a very good substitute for Sancho if Manchester United are unable to sign the £108m-rated player.

Manchester United have tried to sign Bale on several occasions since they missed out on his signature in the summer of 2013 when he signed for Real Madrid from North London side Tottenham Hotspur.
Gareth Bale earns around £350,000 after tax on a weekly basis at Real Madrid and Manchester United are one of the few teams that can afford his salary.
He is on the outskirts of the Real Madrid team at the moment after falling out with manager Zinedine Zidane. Gareth Bale was restricted to just 14 appearances in all competitions last season as a result.
Manchester United have signed just one player in the present transfer window and that’s Dutch international Donny Van De Beek who signed from Dutch champions Ajax Amsterdam in a £40m deal.
