After losing summer transfer target Pedro to Chelsea, Manchester United have turned their attention to getting Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale.

According to several reports, Louis van Gaal and senor officials of the club think they have a chance of luring the Wales international from Real Madrid.

After a successful debut season in Spain winning the Copa del Rey and UEFA Champions league, Bale had an unimpressive second season which Real Madrid finished trophyless.

The forward was mostly blamed for Madrid's failures last season-his car was attacked twice by fans- and it was reported that Bale would be looking for a move away from the Bernabeu.

Though Real Madrid have insisted that the forward is not for sale and part of Rafa Benitez's plans, United are ready to tempt the La Liga giant with a huge bid.

United's Executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward remains confident of landing a big player this summer and Van Gaal believes getting the forward will make United a huge contender for the English Premier League title.

After Pedro's snub, United lodged a £15m bid for Southampton striker Sadio Mane though the club has rejected it.
