United ready to move for Bale after Shield procession
Manchester United may offer competition to Real Madrid in the pursuit of Gareth Bale, with Tottenham Hotspur seemingly more receptive to the English champions, having become deeply frustrated by negotiations with the Spanish side.
United have not made a firm offer for Bale, above, but their failure to land a big-money signing this summer may persuade them to make a huge investment. The odds are stacked against a deal coming to fruition. They have been reluctant about the prospect of being strung along by Spurs chairman Daniel Levy, a frustrating sparring partner in past transfers.
United, who laboured to a 2-0 victory over Wigan in yesterday’s Community Shield, are also expected to bid for Everton pair Leighton Baines and Marouane Fellaini this week. “We’re moving forward,” Moyes said. “Every day you get closer – and so does the deadline – but if we have to I am happy to go with what we have. We have a lot of good, young English players.” pages 48-49

Since his blistering run of 9.91sec in the 100 metres semi-final at the UK Trials, James Dasaolu has become something of an invisible man in sprinting terms. After becoming only the fourth Briton to dip under that dream 10sec barrier, the hope – in fact, expectation – was that Dasaolu would back that up... and soon.

That the last world record on this track went to a Paralympic athlete seemed a fitting finale to the closing act of the first part of the Olympic Stadium’s life. It has played host to the transformation of a movement and on Sunday it hosted a full-house of 65,000 to celebrate what Paralympic sport has become to this country in the space of a year. Outside the Paralympic Games it is the largest ever audience for such an event.
