Manchester United will be offered the chance to sign Gareth Bale from Real Madrid in January – as part of a sensational swap deal involving Angel Di Maria.

United have been strongly linked with a move for Bale in the new year, with Louis van Gaal looking to add a quality winger to his side.

And now the Daily Express says Madrid are willing to hand over Bale – in exchange for Di Maria.

Madrid flogged the Argentine to United in a £59million deal only a matter of months ago, but they desperately want him back, and hope the offer of Bale would be enough to do business.
