Former Manchester United coach David Moyes recently talked about the first player he wanted to sign after picking up the Red Devils pointer is Bale. They made every effort at the time, but in the end he chose Real Madrid. It was a correct decision for him.
Moyes said: "Gareth Bale may be the first name I think of after getting this job. I think he is a Manchester United player, he is the right type."
"From George Best to Giggs, and many other outstanding players in between, Manchester United has a great history in signing."
He also said: "I hope Bell will be my first signing at Manchester United. But their deal with Real Madrid is almost concluded. I tried to cut Hu. Manchester United's offer to Bell is higher than Real Madrid."
"We did everything we could to get this player. We even sent a helicopter to pick him up at the training ground. We thought we had a chance. But he chose Real Madrid. It was a correct decision because he got it there. Four Champions League champions. He has had an outstanding career."
