Gareth Bale is NOT a transfer target for Manchester United this summer, reports claim.
Real Madrid are trying their best to offload the Wales international during the transfer window as he has become surplus to requirements under Zinedine Zidane.
The LaLiga club have already strengthened their attack this month with the additions of Eden Hazard from Chelsea and Luka Jovic, the Serbia forward.
Bale, 29, remains under contract until 2022 but is believed to be reluctant to leave the Bernabeu where he is paid a reported £600,000-a-week.
ESPN FC report that Man United have rejected the chance to open talks with the former Tottenham forward.
A number of top European clubs are understood to have been sounded out over the prospect of signing Bale as Madrid look to get him off their wage bill.
The Wales star has been a long-term target of United’s but they do not want him this summer, as the club have decided he is too old and are instead looking towards younger players to build for the future.
Bale turns 30 next month and the potential cost of the move, including his exorbitant wages, has put potential suitors off.
