It is becoming more and more likely that Gareth Bale will depart Real Madrid in the summer and speculation over the Welshman’s future is starting to pick up pace.
Lack of recent playing time and constant injuries have taken their toll on the fans, the manager and the player himself and a parting of ways has been accepted by all parties.
The big question is, where will Bale end up?
He may well go to Germany, Italy or France but a return to the Premier League remains the favourite destination with the bookies.
Clear favourites, they have long been linked with the former Tottenham man and it would be a huge shock if Mourinho did not enter the fray once Bale becomes available.
Probably not, it is hard to see where Bale would fit in and whether Guardiola would even want him.
Quite possibly, they like a player that can run at defences and Bale certainly fits that bill and would also be a good replacement for Eden Hazard, who coincidently is wanted by Real Madrid. Swap deal?
Doubtful, it is rumoured that Spurs have a buy-back clause but both the player and club have moved on and as with Man City, where would Bale fit in? There is also the wage structure to think about.
Maybe, Bale is the sort of player that Klopp likes and the Reds are not shy to spend and pay big wages, so it is a definite maybe.
No, Bale knows what the consequences would be with the Tottenham fans and Arsenal are simply not the attraction they once were.
United remain clear favourites and it is now probable that Bale will be at Old Traford next season.
