Old Trafford side to offer Mexican international in part exchange for White Hart Lane attacker.
Man United are looking to edge out Real Madrid in the race to sign Tottenham attacker Gareth Bale with David Moyes ready to offer cash plus Mexican forward Javier Hernandez in return for White Hart Lane’s prized asset according to the Daily Star.
The Old Trafford side are yet to make a high profile signing this summer and perhaps tellingly have no one filling the club’s iconic number seven shirt, this could leave some to speculate that Moyes is looking to bring in a ‘Marquee’ signing this summer.
Real Madrid are thought to be leading the chase to sign 24 year old Welsh international Gareth Bale but it appears that the Bernabeu side may be struggling to come up with the funds necessary to tempt Tottenham into selling their star performer.
White Hart Lane chairman Daniel Levy is demanding a fee in excess of the current world transfer record £80m spent by Real Madrid to sign Cristiano Ronaldo back in 2009, however the Spanish giants are only willing to make such an offer in payments spread over up to six years, an offer Tottenham are not interested in.
Moyes continues to track both Cesc Fabregas and Leighton Baines but now wants to bring in Bale as a statement of intent from a club missing it’s figurehead following the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson.
Gareth Bale may well be open to a move to follow in the footsteps of boyhood hero Ryan Giggs.
Having largely been used in a supporting role throughout his three seasons at Man United Javier Hernandez could well be open to a fresh challenge and though Andre Villas-Boas has signed Roberto Soldado from Valencia the Tottenham boss may well still be in need of further striking options.
