Mourinho does not want Woodward to blow the transfer budget by spending £200m for European superstar

Gareth Bale

Jose Mourinho does not want Manchester United to spend all their entire transfer budget in bringing Gareth Bale from Real Madrid.

A report from The Sun claims that our vice-chairman Ed Woodward wants to bring the Welshman to Old Trafford and make him our marquee signing ahead of the new season. However, Mourinho wants the club to find some extra cash to bring the Welshman who helped Real Madrid win the Champions League.

The report also goes on to say that Bale is valued at around £200m but that Mourinho wants to spend the money on players that he deems more important to the club, looking to bring in stars such as Fred and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

Bale hasn’t started as many games as he would have liked to last season but he did come off the bench to score the winning goals in the Champions League final against Liverpool.

The 28-year-old would be a great addition to our ranks but he is certainly not worth £200m. There could be another spanner in the works though as Zinedine Zidane has left his post at Madrid. This might play a role in Bale deciding to stay at the club.

There is no doubt that the Welshman still has a lot in him and working under a manager like Mourinho might even help the attacker reach new levels.

United do require some extra attacking input even after the signing of Alexis Sanchez and hopefully, we will be able to land the players that we want. Should we get the players we want, we will be able to challenge for the Premier League title and hopefully.
