Manchester United are reportedly set to make a stunning attempt to sign Gareth Bale, the Daily Star has revealed.
The Red Devils have already added a number of top class players to their squad but are determined to make a move for the Welshman who has a market transfer value of £95m.
The Spanish giants are not interested in selling the former Tottenham Hotspur man and new manager Rafa Benitez declared on Saturday that the 26-year-old could be deployed in a new position this season, behind the strikers rather than on the wing.
"It's an idea, it's an option," Benitez said.
"Obviously, he can play in a number of different positions in the final third. This [playing behind the strikers] one is an option and I like this option if he can do well."
