Jose Mourinho has told Manchester United to sign Real Madrid star Gareth Bale, according to reports.
The Welsh star has been a long-term target for the Red Devils since his days at Tottenham Hotspur before he opted to join Real Madrid despite interest from United.
Jose Mourinho has come out to reveal his intentions to sign a fourth player this summer following the arrivals of Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindelof to the Old Trafford.
The Red Devils have been linked to a number of targets this summer, with the likes of AS Monaco star Fabinho and Paris Saint Germain defender, Serge Aurier both tipped to make a move to the Old Trafford.
Although, it is believed that Mourinho will prefer a new face on his left wing and was after Inter Milan star Ivan Perisic whose potential move to United has broken down due to the club’s demands.
Reports in the Sun have now claimed that Jose Mourinho has told club executive vice president Ed Woodward to make a bid of £100 million for Gareth Bale.
The 28-year-old had earlier dismissed reports that he was on his way out of the Old Trafford, insisting that he is happy to fight for his place at the Santiago Bernabeu despite keen interest from several clubs.
