Manchester United are refusing to pay more than £90million for Gareth Bale, according to reports.

It is claimed that United have a firm valuation for Bale and are unwilling to budge if Real look to negotiate a deal.

United boss Jose Mourinho has admitted his admiration for the former Tottenham star with a bid potentially on the cards before the end of the transfer window.

But Diario Gol claim that a move will not be done for more than £90m, as United stand firm.

Real, however, reportedly want to make a healthy profit on Bale, who they signed for £86m in the summer of 2013.

Mourinho leaves door open for Rose transfer

Jose Mourinho has left the door open for a move for unsettled Tottenham full-back Danny Rose.

Mourinho has been looking for a left-sided wide man for his fourth and final signing of the summer, but has not ruled out a move for £40million-rated Rose.

England defender Rose wants a move this summer after publicly criticising Tottenham's lack of recruitment this summer , as well as the club's rigid pay structure.

Rose can play at full-back or in a more attacking wing-back role, with Mourinho admitting he is open - in terms of position - to the final "25 per cent" of his transfer business.

"Twenty five per cent [left] means one of four, and we've got a central defender that can play in many other positions, which is important," said Mourinho.

"Victor [Lindelof] can play right-back and can play central midfield. We got a central midfielder, we got a striker.

"Obviously the 25 per cent would be a player for another position, playing from the sides."

Manchester United are ready to offer Zlatan Ibrahimovic a new deal.

The Swedish striker's Old Trafford career looked to be over when he suffered a knee injury towards the end of last season.

Ibrahimovic is unlikely to play before the end of the year but United boss Jose Mourinho has confirmed the club are talking to the 35-year-old about extending his stay.

He said: "You know he's injured, he needs time to recover, he's not ready to play.

"It's not something urgent, that we are desperate to have it done or not done, I just think that he was very clear by showing what he did last year was not enough for him.

"He thinks he can do more and wants more at the highest level, so we're having conversations and we're discussing the possibility of him to stay with us for the second part of the season."
