Manchester United preparing £50m swoop for stars Gareth Bale & Franck Ribery

Manchester United look poised to test the resolve of both Tottenham Hotspur and Bayern Munich with bids for Gareth Bale and Franck Ribery, respectively, as the Glazers look to keep their promise to Wayne Rooney of providing a squad capable of challenging for honours. UK exclusively revealed on Saturday that Sir Alex Ferguson has been assured of a £50 million transfer kitty by the Glazer family, in addition to whatever he can make from player sales, and reports in The Sunday Mirror reiterate this, citing Bale and Ribery as the manager’s top targets.

The story is too old to be commented.

Bale would fit perfectly in United. He is great, but I am not sure Tottenham will let hi m go. Ribery is a good player, but i wouldnt like him to become a United player.

Bale is not good enough for this team. This will be Fergusons second mistake for this season.

Bale is amazing but Ribery is injury prone lately maybe they shuold look elsewhere both are certainly great players

I feel like they would have to sell Rooney, to get enough money for these 50mil. Even if they have the money I doubt that Bayern will sell Ribery for only 50mil maybe 65million pounds.

all depends on if spurs qualify for the champs league next season, if not all the big clubs will atleast try to sign him and i doubt united can compete with city or madrid. dont know about ribery though but if united could sign bale it would be great.

Bale, Next season, Spur might not make 4 spot, but if they do then bale is no chance, For Riberry Hahaha who need him that guy is more like Hargreaves
