Reports: Manchester United Ready To Pay £85m For Real Madrid Superstar

Following a trophyless campaign in 2017/18, Manchester United are reportedly ready to pay a whopping £85 million for one of Real Madrid's superstars, and make him the highest paid player at the club.

The English giants have once again been linked with a host of names in the transfer window, with Shakhtar Donetsk's Fred expected by many to be Jose Mourinho's first signing.

The Brazilian is said to have arrived for a medical at the club on Monday, and is expected to be announced as new United player later in the week.

However, Mourinho's shopping spree will not end with the midfielder – the Portuguese is reportedly also targeting Los Blancos superstar Gareth Bale.

The Welshman was the Man of the Match in this year's UEFA Champions League final after scoring a brace against Liverpool, but suggested immediately after the game that he could leave the Spanish giants.

Bale is looking for more regular game time, having said that he needs to play "week in week out", and confirmed he will sit down with his agent to discuss a potential move.

The Sunday Times has claimed United are prepared to match Real's £85 million (R1.44 billion) asking price for the Welshman and would offer him wages in excess of £500 000 (R8.5 million) a week. The massive salary would see him surpass Alexis Sanchez as the highest paid player at United.

Bale scored 21 goals and assisted another eight strikes in 39 games for Real in 2017/18, and has netted 88 times overall and set up another 59 goals since his club record move to the Santiago Bernabeu.

I think it will be best for Bale to leave just like Neymar.... start a new life where you won't be compared to someone of won't be expected to play and succeed someone where you'll just play your normal game.... Bale is a good player but sometimes Madrid expect him to do things which he is unfamiliar whit... he is a team player not an individual glory player.... so the move will be best for all parties

Bale will be dumb to leave the biggest club in the world, but if they pay him so much then its good economics for him. Otherwise, CR7 is getting old now and Madrid will need Bale more going forward.

Bale will be stupid to join a sinking ship like Man U. He must stay at Real because Zizou is gone we don't about the new coach maybe he will use him
