Premier League rumours: Gareth Bale interested in Manchester United switch?

Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale has asked his agent to court Manchester United, according to reports quoted in the Daily Star (via Spanish news outlet Diario Gol).

Former United and Wales winger Ryan Giggs would consider joining Swansea as the Welsh club’s new manager if Francesco Guidolin leaves the Liberty Stadium, The Times reports.

The Daily Mail claims Jurgen Klinsmann wants to fast-track Tottenham defender Cameron Carter-Vickers into the senior United States squad amid fears England will poach the 18-year-old.

Former Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal is set for a return to management with German strugglers Werder Bremen, according to The Sun.

The Daily Mirror says Stoke manager Mark Hughes and his players are unhappy with the attitude of striker Wilfried Bony, who arrived on loan from Manchester City last month as the Potters’ £120,000-a-week top earner but is yet to score a goal.
