Bale_2013 [1]Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has confirmed the rumors that Manchester United wanted Gareth Bale and that they had submitted a bid for the Welshman.

The 24-year-old moved from Tottenham to Real Madrid earlier this month for $137 million (£86m) after three months of negotiations.

During that time, rumors flew that Manchester United was interested in bringing Bale to Old Trafford and that the Red Devils had bid on the winger, for possibly as much as $202 million.
