2: Gareth Bale | Madrid to Manchester United

You couldn't write the script.

The transfer saga regarding Gareth Bale's record-breaking move to Madrid was so hyped that you'd have though he'd be finishing his career there.

However a stuttering start amidst speculation that he's having problems adapting to Spanish life and Bale is already being linked with a sensational €100m move to Manchester United next summer.

It's believed the Red Devils attempted to compete with Madrid in the summer for his signature but didn't come close.

Hard to fathom, but stranger things have happened.
