Manchester United would rather sign Jadon Sancho, Declan Rice and Callum Hudson Odoi over Gareth Bale – reports
Manchester United will turn down the opportunity to sign Gareth Bale in favour of Jadon Sancho, Declan Rice and Callum Hudson-Odoi, reports claim.
The Red Devils are regularly linked with the Real Madrid forward, whose future is a constant source of speculation.
Madrid are reportedly looking to sell the Welshman this summer as manager Zinedine Zidane plots a mass overhaul of his current squad.
But, according to the Daily Star, Bale has priced himself out of a potential move to Old Trafford with his extraordinary wage demands.
The 29-year-old reportedly wants £450,000-a-week, and with United reluctant to agree those terms, they have turned their attention elsewhere.

It is understood the club would prefer to invest in young English talent – with Sancho, Rice and Hudson-Odoi top of their wishlist.
Chelsea forward Hudson-Odoi continues to stall on a new deal at Stamford Bridge, and with his current deal set to expire in June 2020, the Blues could be forced to cash in this summer.
However, United will have to fend off competition from Bayern Munich and Barcelona to sign the talented 18-year-old.
West Ham midfielder Rice, 20, could represent a long-term replacement for Ander Herrera amid reports the Spaniard could join Arsenal or Paris Saint-Germain when his contract expires this summer.
Meanwhile, Borussia Dortmund winger Sancho, 19, is rated as one of the brightest teenagers in world football after a stellar breakthrough season in the Bundesliga.
