Video: David Moyes hints that Man Utd are trying to sign Gareth Bale from Spurs
Manchester United boss David Moyes played it coy when confronted by rumours that his club have bid for Spurs star Gareth Bale.
The Scot wouldn’t confirm or deny rumours that the champions are challenging Real Madrid for Bale’s signature. But he dropped a pretty big hint that they are by pointing out that it’s exactly the sort of signing that he had said he wanted to make when he was first appointed.
He said: “I also said at the start, I think when I got the job, that Manchester United will always be interested in the best players and we’re always looking to try and improve the team.
“The owners have given me every opportunity to bring in whoever I want, so we’ll continue to try and find those players.”
Asked directly if he was in for Bale, Moyes said: “I can’t give you any more.”
How do you read that? Is Moyes serious about signing Bale?
