Manchester United have lodged a whopping £72.5 million bid for Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale just a day before summer transfer window deadline, according to reports.

United boss Louis Van Gaal is desperate to add more attacking options to his team this summer and despite having shown interest in Neymar and Thomas Muller, the 26-year-old Wales international remains his top target.

Daily Star had previously reported that the Red Devils have offered £65m plus David De Gea deal to Madrid in a last-moment attempt to lure the former Tottenham Hotspur man to the Old Trafford.

But beIN Sports reporter Tancredi Palmeri has claimed that it is not player-plus-cash deal but a big-money offer worth £72.5m made by 20-time Premier League champions to the Spanish club.

Bale has scored 41 goals in 31 appearances for Madrid since joining the Los Blancos club for a world-record £85m fee in summer 2013.

On Saturday, he scored two goals in his side’s crushing 5-0 win over Real Betis in their second La Liga game this season.
