United eyeing shock double swoop – Manchester United are targeting the world’s two most expensive players: Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo. Despite frustrating Real Madrid in the transfer window, the Sunday Mirror reports that United are plotting a 12-month charm offensive to coax the Spaniards into selling Bale.
There is also reportedly belief at Old Trafford that Ronaldo could follow the Welshman, if tensions with manager Rafa Benitez escalate. According to a ‘high-level source’ at United, the collapse of the David De Gea deal on deadline day will not affect business between the two clubs.
