Bale rejected higher offer from Man United before Madrid move ― Moyes

Mourinho admits even he 'didn't expect' Spurs impressive summer recruitment

In the end, the winger opted for a move to Real Madrid and United failed to land any of their new manager's top targets (sounds awfully familiar, doesn't it?).

This isn't to say, however, that United didn't do all they could to bring Bale to Old Trafford, as Moyes has now revealed.

Bale looks set to make his second Tottenham debut against Moyes' Hammers on Sunday.

He targeted Bale to be his first signing at the club, offering more money than Madrid and having a helicopter on standby for Bale.

Former Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas has recalled the conversation that helped turn Gareth Bale into the world's most expensive player.


"When Gareth wasn't feeling that he was unlocking his full potential, he came into my office one day and he said, "Boss I'm not happy, things are not going well for me", the current Marseille manager told COPA90 in a virtual manager masterclass to celebrate the biggest update of EA SPORTS FIFA 21's Career Mode in 10 years. He was the right type.

Welshman Bale returned to north London from Real Madrid on loan last month and was rested during the worldwide break to rebuild his fitness levels. I tried to hijack it. I tried to get him.

The Welsh striker will try to regain such form after battling for his feet at Real Madrid.

'Now, he might be as much a creator if he's played deeper or drops deeper, much the way Harry Kane did when he provided all four goals for Son (Heung-min) at Southampton recently. We even had a helicopter at the training ground to take him and bring him back.

But the Welshman snubbed a move to the Premier League giants in favour of a switch to Real Madrid. We thought we had a chance.
