Manchester United manager, Louis van Gaal has refused to talk on rumours about his club’s reported interest in a move for Wales and Real Madrid star, Gareth Bale during the upcoming winter transfer window.
Recently, various media outlets in UK and Spanish reported that The Red Devils are ready to launch an audacious bid to acquire the services of the forward, but the Dutchman insisted that any discussions of the Wales international’s future would remain in-house.
The former Barcelona manager told a news conference today that any such discussion will be done only with club management and not with the media.
He said, “I cannot discuss that with you. I discuss it with my CEO and not with anyone in the media.”
On the other hand, David Manasseh, the co-owner of Stellar Group that represents Gareth Bale, told CalcioMercato last month that speculation linking the player with a move to United is untrue and that the player was fully committed to the reigning European champions.
While AS has reported that United are willing to pay 120 million pounds, to land the player, the newspaper adds that the player’s camp has rejected claims in the UK press that the former Tottenham man is keen to return to England.
