Juventus preparing £90m bid for Real Madrid player

Serie A champions Juventus have emerged as shocking contenders to sign Real Madrid’s Welsh wizard Gareth Bale as they plan to surprise Premier League outfit Manchester United by placing an early bid for the player next summer.

The former Tottenham man has been linked with Manchester United for the last two seasons despite current manager Jose Mourinho stating that he is not going to launch a bid for the player.

Manchester United reportedly did bid for the player in the summer transfer window gone by but Bale rejected the offer in favour of a stay at Real Madrid as he did not intend to leave this season.
