Manchester United are reportedly prepared to renew their interest in Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale.
Although a number of alternatives have been suggested in recent weeks, the Daily Star claims that Bale is United's preferred option.
The Wales international, who has two years left on his contract, remains down the pecking order under Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane.
The La Liga champions are allegedly prepared to consider handing Bale a free transfer, providing that he gives up the remaining 12 months of his deal.
A potential stumbling block could be United's desire to sign the 31-year-old on loan, an option which has frequently been dismissed by Bale's agent Jonathan Barnett.
