Manchester United is in line to hijack Gareth Bale’s move to Tottenham Hotspur, according to report in AS.
The Old Trafford giants are still in the race to sign the Welsh attacker after their pursuit for Borussia Dortmund star looks very unlikely this summer.
A Real Madrid official told AS in Spain that Manchester United is seen as viable suitors for the 31-year-old forward, despite his former club Tottenham Hotspur edging ever closer to sealing a sensational return.
Manchester United could make a last-minute move for the Welsh attacker if they fail to land Sancho this summer.
Real Madrid is understood to pay half of his wage while Tottenham Hotspur undertake the remainder for the next two season.
Once the Real Madrid attacker joins Spurs he would be the highest-paid player in the history of Tottenham Hotspur with a wage of £500,000-per-week.
