It's all change under Jose at Old Trafford as it appears not only are the club are on the brink of signing Antoine Griezmann, but they're also keen to get their hands on another Spanish side's key talent: Gareth Bale.

Bale is expected to start on the bench at the cup final event in Cardiff, a move that could set in motion his departure as it would appear to affirm the club's preference for Isco - his replacement during his recent two-month injury spell.

The Independent report that a number of Real Madrid officials believe they should cash in on Bale and the club are in talks with United - a club he's been linked with several times and turned down in favour of a move to sunny Spain in 2013.

Whilst Florentino Perez, the President of the club, is a fan of the Welshman, Isco has proved popular amongst fans and a European Cup win without Bale may cement the idea he is surplus to requirements.

In other news, it looks like the Mourinho never-ending lottery spree may also need to be extended to keep their goalkeeper David De Gea who the club turned down a £60m bid from Real Madrid for last night.

Silly season has well and truly begun.
