Manchester United may be edging closer to bringing Gareth Bale to Old Trafford this summer after his odds on joining the club were slashed by bookies, the Daily Star reports.

Manchester United transfer rumours
The Welshman is an increasingly unpopular figure at Real Madrid after a series of poor displays, culminating in last night’s drab performance in the El Clasico defeat to Barcelona.
Chelsea have also been strongly linked with the £70m-rated attacker, who starred in the Premier League during his time with Tottenham Hotspur.
Still, United remain the big favourites to snap Bale up, with many bookies now offering odds of 7/4 on the 25-year-old linking up with Louis van Gaal’s side this summer.
