According to the Daily Star, Man United boss Luis Van Gaal is set to make a last ditch bid for Real Madrid galactico Gareth Bale. The Red Devils have long been linked with the Welsh wizard and could be set to make a move to bring him in after missing out on targets during the window.

Goalkeeper David De Gea has been heavily linked with a move to the Bernabeu for the entire summer, and Van Gaal could use that as a bargaining tool for a move for Bale. A sensational offer could be made of £65 million plus De Gea to secure the transfer and bring in a world class talent. 

It has been a good week for United as they cruised to the Champions League group stages thanks to a Wayne Rooney hat-trick, ending his 9 game goal drought in the process. A return to England is expected at some point from Bale, but whether they can prise him from Madrid at this point remains to be seen, Van Gaal will be hoping their interest in De Gea will encourage them to negotiate the deal.
