BALE is on his way to Manchester United.

But Red Devils fans better not get excited thinking that they have agreed a deal for Real Madrid’s Welsh star.

Instead of Gareth winging his way into training today at Carrington, it was a tuck carrying a load of hay chugging down the road.

But fans will still be hoping a move could materialise this summer for the player continually linked with a switch to Old Trafford.

And the day didn’t start well for young United full-back Diogo Dalot as he got stuck behind the slow moving vehicle.

He’ll be hoping his pathway into the starting XI for United’s Champions League game at home to Barcelona on Wednesday isn’t blocked too.

Dalot was picked to start in the defeat to Wolves last time out, but had an off-game and was subbed off late in the game.

Anthony Martial was determined he wasn’t going to be slowed down on his way into training, as he was snapped dodging around a speed bump.

Thankfully the tractor coming in the opposite direction seemed happy enough to let him pass.

It’s a big few weeks coming up for Manchester United on and off the pitch.

As well as the daunting Champions League clashes against Barca in the quarter-finals, they will be playing catch-up on games in the race for the Premier League top four.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revitalised the squad after Jose Mourinho was sacked, landing himself a three-year contract to stay on permanently.

GRIDLOCK ON PHELAN

But while his future has been secured, the same can’t be said for another brains behind the salvage operation, Mike Phelan.

According to MailOnline, Phelan, who was Sir Alex Ferguson’s trusted lieutenant during the glory days, is “considering his position” after having talks with the club.

His issues are believed to be centred around a complicated management and recruitment system, something the club are keen to sort out.


Executive vice chairman Ed Woodward and Solskjaer himself want to appoint a sporting director to streamline the process.

But with 58 scouts based all over the world, Phelan “wants to establish a clearer line of communication between the coaching team and the Old Trafford hierarchy”.

The 56-year-old returned to the club this season, five-and-a-half-years after leaving together with the retiring Fergie.
