Manchester United have been linked with a move for Jadon Sancho over the last few weeks, but the Red Devils must avoid trying to sign the young Borussia Dortmund and England international and look to lure a proven top-class goal-scoring winger to Old Trafford in the summer.
Sancho switched to the Bundesliga outfit from United's neighbours Manchester City, and the teenager has been a phenomenal success for the German heavyweights and it has earned him a call-up to the English national squad, for which he has taken with both hands and blossomed in a Three Lions shirt.
However, United are not in a position to sign an unproven talent in the Premier League, as they need quick results to try and see them get back into the hunt for Premier League glory, and should Ole Gunnar Solskjaer be given the full-time manager's position in the summer then he should look to sign Gareth Bale from Real Madrid.
The Welsh captain has had a glittering career in a Real Madrid shirt, but over the last 18 months the clubs' fans have started to get frustrated with the left-footed star, and it could be an ideal time for him to leave the Bernabeu, and United must make sure they are first in the queue to bag his signing.
Making over 100 appearances for Real, Bale has scored over 70 goals for the Whites, but with the Spanish giants struggling to find top form this season then Bale has been one of the players that has been targeted with vitriol from the passionate fans.
Zinedine Zidane's return to the club may not excite Bale, as the pair have sometimes failed to click, so the 29-year-old could be ready for a move back to the Premier League, and you have to feel that United can offer a lot more than former club Tottenham Hotspur can, and the Red Devils should grab him while they can.
Bale was a revelation for Spurs between 2007 and 2013, and he rapidly became one of the hottest properties in world football during his time at White Hart Lane, but with his possible transfer fee out of Spurs' range then it's United that can benefit from his services.
United have made a resurgence under Solskjaer, and he has quickly hurried some exciting youthful talents through the ranks to play in the first-team, but some experienced heads will be needed to help nurture those young talents and Bale can become an ideal proposition for the fledgling Norwegian boss.
With Marcus Rashford now becoming the number one striker then Bale's relationship with Rashford could scare the living daylights out of Premier League defences, and put that brace of players alongside the likes of Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard then they could be a quality quartet ready to cause havoc.
Wide man Alexis Sanchez's career at United has barely got off the ground and Solskjaer appears to be reluctant to play the Chilean when fit, but Bale could add a whole new dimension to the United squad, and the Old Trafford board must propel him to the top of their transfer list this summer.
