Revealed! Reasons Mourinho Did Not Want Manchester United Pursue Bale
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has never asked Ed Woodward to bring Gareth Bale because the task is the same as ‘mission impossible’.
Manchester United want to bring in Bale when he was a teenager in Southampton 10 years ago. United even never give an offer to Tottenham is worth greater than that offered by Real Madrid in 2013.
Mourinho described the prospect of bringing in Cristiano Ronaldo as a ‘mission impossible’ last week. He also mentioned the same thing when asked about the possibility of getting Gareth Bale.
“Yes, it’s the same. We have contacts, we understand the situation, it is clear that Bale likes Madrid, likes the challenge, likes the situation. He was in a club that was in a very good situation and now I never feel the desire of him to leave. So why should we spend time and energy for that? “Mourinho said.
Manchester United are believed to still retain their interest in Bale. But Mourinho told Woodward a few months ago to focus on bringing in a bargain player. As is known, Woodward had tried and failed to bring Bale, Ronaldo, Neymar and Sergio Ramos in recent years. When asked about the name of United’s priority target, Mourinho refused to decide.
“That name is hard for me. Because, as you know, players with their clubs, players are in pre-season. Managers and club owners are not happy if you talk about them, just like me, “he added.
“If I’m here now and somebody says, ‘I want to buy a player from Manchester United, I’m negotiating with a player from Manchester United’, then I’ll ask, ‘Hey, I’m here and my club is also here, so Be careful what you say ‘, “continued Mourinho.
“I never hide my plans to evolve the team in the transfer market this time. That’s because in the transfer market last December we did not do it. And I say that my plan is to bring in four players who can give the balance of the team. In all the different areas to make the squad even better, “the manager said.
“I repeat the same thing, the transfer market is very difficult, so if the club does not have a chance to give me four players, then I will like my team. I love my players, and I try to be with them. But I still have hope to get a third player, and who knows, the fourth player. But at least I want a third player, “he concluded. (Source: Manchester Evening News)
