Manchester United use Giggs to recruit unsettled Gareth Bale

While The Mirror says that Bale doesn't want to leave Real Madrid, AS report that countryman Ryan Giggs is trying to make him join United.

This will not be an easy summer for Real Madrid. The club still has to make a final decision on Carlo Ancelotti's future and the potential signing of David De Gea, and yet Gareth Bale is once again rumored to be on his way out. Spanish newspaper AS report on their front page that the Welshman could be trying to find a way out of Real Madrid, and that United's assistant coach and countryman Ryan Giggs is convincing him of joining Manchester United.

Meanwhile, British newspaper The Mirror say that Bale is determined to stay with Real Madrid this summer no matter United's interest. These are opposite reports and both should be taken with a grain of salt, but Bale shouldn't be blamed if he wants to leave considering the fans' whistles during this season.

If United come with a big offer -- and one that includes David De Gea -- Real Madrid might as well sell Bale. But first things first, because Los Blancos still have to name their coach for the 2015-2016 season.
