Manchester United opted against rivaling Tottenham’s move for Gareth Bale, with the winger’s injury record and personal terms convincing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer not to pursue a loan deal.

Bale was always seen as a back up to top target Jadon Sancho, whose proposed transfer from Borussia Dortmund has reached an impasse over the German club’s £108million valuation.

Wales international Bale is now set to rejoin Spurs on loan seven years after leaving them for Real Madrid in a world record deal.



United were prepared to discuss a short-term move for the 31-year-old after learning of Real’s determination to offload him this summer.

But despite him being a long-term target for executive vice chairman Ed Woodward, it’s understood the Old Trafford club never drove negotiations - instead considering him one of a number of alternatives to Sancho.

Ivan Perisic and Douglas Costa remain under consideration - but Sancho is still Solskjaer’s overwhelming priority before the window closes next month.
