Manchester United are preparing a £60million bid for Tottenham star Gareth Bale, according to a report in The Daily Mirror newspaper today.

The newspaper cites no sources, but the reporter understands that one of the reasons why Manchester United chief executive Ed Woodward made an unexpected return to England to work on transfer business was to finalize a deal with Tottenham for Bale.

The paper reports that “United are desperate to ensure that they give Moyes complete backing as he attempts to carry on the phenomenal success his predecessor Sir Alex Ferguson delivered.”

At the same time, The Telegraph newspaper is reporting that Tottenham are not willing to sell Bale at any price, while Spanish newspaper AS reports that Tottenham will offer Bale a new contract worth double his current deal to stave off Real Madrid.

Is today’s Mirror article transfer speculation, or does it contain a grain of truth? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
