Real Madrid reveals price for Gareth Bale — La Liga

Gareth Bale

Herrera was overrun in midfield as Chelsea beat United 1-0 at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League, and Paul Pogba will walk straight back into the starting XI when he is deemed fit to play, once again consigning the 28-year-old to the bench.

There has also been previous interest from Chelsea while Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is said to support the idea of reuniting Bale with his former club.

Real want £85m for the player, which these days could probably be used more effectively on a player with fresher legs, or perhaps to bring in more than just one player.

In the past Manchester United have made little effort in hiding their interest in Bale, with the Red Devils reportedly failing on a number of occasions to lure the playmaker to Old Trafford after their attempts to initially land one of the world's best came to no avail - even before he made the switch to Real Madrid in 2013.

Guedes has taken to life in Spain with ease, becoming one of the breakout stars of the early season. Over the last couple of seasons he has failed to entirely convince Zinedine Zidane that he should always be first choice, meaning that there is a chance that the Spanish club could countenance his sale.

Paper Round's view: Can has the potential to become an effective and sophisticated midfielder, especially if he leaves the one-note Jurgen Klopp behind. Guardiola and Juventus both offer the chance to play regularly at the high end of European football, something Liverpool are unlikely to be able to offer unless something fundamentally changes.

The three-time Champions League winner has only played in 159 out of 248 competitive matches and 105 of 161 league games since joining Madrid. The 25-year-old Ivory Coast international has recently returned from injury for Palace as they face another relegation battle. Sanchez is expected to leave for Manchester City in the winter transfer window, or potentially on a free transfer at the end of the season.

"I feel a great admiration for Valverde", said Herrera. Unloved and unwanted by United manager José Mourinho, Shaw has been courted by Turkish club Fenerbahce but is keen to move somewhere closer to home.

Bale remains one of the biggest names in world football, but his injury record might tempt United to look elsewhere for a superstar name.
