Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale has set his sights on joining Jose Mourinho at Manchester United this summer but the catch is that the Devils don’t want him at Old Trafford right now.

Mourinho has been a long-term admirer of the Welsh international and even spoke highly of him at the beginning of the season when United were about to face Real Madrid in the International Champions Cup. Rumours were rife and many media outlets started linking the winger with a move to Manchester United but Mourinho himself confirmed that acquiring Bale would be ‘mission impossible’.

“You have contacts, you have feelings, you understand things, I think it was clear that Bale likes Madrid, the challenge, the situation, he’s in a club in a very good situation now, I never felt a desire from him to leave, so why lose time and energy on that? No,” Mourinho was quoted by the Daily Telegraph.

So according to the latest report from Spanish transfer outlet Don BalonReal are keen on selling Bale to Tottenham as they believe the Welshman would act as a makeweight in a deal which would see Harry Kane travel the other way. The source claims that those at Tottenham rate Kane at £200million while Florentino Pérez is ready to pay as much as £150million plus Gareth Bale for the Englishman.

However, the Welshman is preferring a move to Manchester United instead but the Devils don’t want him at the moment mainly because they have enough attacking outlets at their disposal.

Speaking of his summer transfer plans, Jose Mourinho has already confirmed that the club has no intentions of acquiring more attacking players as they already have a lot to choose from.

“That’s the point, that’s the objective,” Mourinho was quoted by the Daily Star.

“The objective is that now we have one, apart from Zlatan Ibrahimovic but let’s forget Zlatan for the moment, we have only one number nine and from having only one number nine now we have more number nines.

“We have Alexis, we have Romelu Lukaku, we have Martial, we have Rashford.

“Rashford can play on the left and on the right, Alexis is exactly the same, all of them apart from Lukaku can also play from behind, they can also play as a second striker.”

So although Gareth Bale remains a tempting option to go for, Mourinho is right about his assessment of the players he has got. Hence, it is safe to say that signing the Welshman would add more problems rather than solving anything.
