Moyes reveals he had HELICOPTER ready to sign Gareth Bale in 2013

Moyes reveals he had HELICOPTER ready to sign Gareth Bale in 2013”

In the end, the winger opted for a move to Real Madrid and United failed to land any of their new manager's top targets (sounds awfully familiar, doesn't it?).

After seven long years outside the Premier League, Gareth Bale made his second Tottenham debut against West Ham on Sunday.

"To have success is minimum to qualify for the Champions League and win a trophy I think", Bale said when asked what he wants to achieve back at Spurs.

That's despite The Red Devils offering more money than Real Madrid and to the player.

Speaking to COPA90, former Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas opened up on a conversation he had with Gareth Bale while both were still at the club, which eventually became a turning point in the Tottenham star's career. "He was the right type", he said. United have a great history of wide players with George Best up to Ryan Giggs and a whole of lot of other brilliant ones in between.

But things could have been different if the Scot had secured Bale, who he wanted as his first summer signing at the time.

That will please chairman Daniel Levy, who negotiated a favourable deal to get Bale back on loan from Real Madrid last month. I tried to hijack it.

"I think Bale has the sensational ability to pass, he's not just a 'runner" at defenders, I can see him as the creator maybe the team are lacking. In that campaign, the Welshman scored 26 goals in 44 games and ended up going to Real Madrid in exchange for 101 million euros. They offered more money to the player. Gareth's always been one that has got that ability to pass the ball as well, he can play with his head up'.

But the Welshman snubbed a move to the Premier League giants in favour of a switch to Real Madrid.
