Cristiano Ronaldo & Gareth Bale Were Manchester United Targets In 2013 – Evra


Sir Alex Ferguson was plotting a double swoop for Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale shortly before his retirement in 2013, according to former Manchester United defender Patrice Evra.

The Frenchman, who spent eight years at Old Trafford, has claimed Ferguson told him he was “99 per cent sure” the club would sign the duo in an attempt to win a third Champions League title.

United finished as Premier League champions that season but were knocked out at the last-16 stage in Europe by Ronaldo’s Real Madrid – who went on to make the summer signing of Bale from Tottenham for a then-world record £90m.

Speaking to the UTD podcast, Evra recalled a conversation he had with Ferguson.

“He said: ‘My target is I’m 99 per cent sure we will have Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale. I just need these two players to win the Champions League again. Ninety-nine per cent’,” Evra said.

“And to be fair, when I speak with Cristiano, I ask him and he said yes to the boss, and was coming to join United. He told me this.”
