Rabat – Manchester United’s manager Van Gaal wants to bring the club glamour and impetus by signing the most expensive soccer players in history, Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo.
While a war of words is taking place between Real Madrid and Manchester United over the collapse of De Gea’s move to the Spanish capital, the British side is convinced that future business will not be affected.
A report by The Mirror said Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo have been long-term targets for Manchester United, placing higher priority on the Welsh athlete.
The Red Devils are reportedly plotting a 12-month charm offensive to coax the Spaniards into selling Bale.
Manchester United already inquired about Bale’s potential availability at the start of the summer and were told that he will be staying with Real Madrid and be given more of a central role by their new coach, Rafael Benítez.
Meanwhile, United are committed to keep testing Madrid’s resolve over 26-year-old Bale staying at the Bernabeu.
According to the same report, there is a possibility at Old Trafford that Ronaldo could follow the Welshman, if tensions with manager Rafa Benítez escalate.
The two clubs have regularly dealt with each other over transfers in recent years, with David Beckham, Gabriel Heinze, Ronaldo and Javier Hernandez moving to Madrid, as well as Angel di Maria arriving in the opposite direction.
