Gareth Bale could make Bayern Munich transfer

Published 14 Comments

Bayern Munich are the latest club to be credited with an interest in coveted Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale, whose future at the Santiago Bernanbeu remains uncertain.

This is according to Rob Shepherd of the Mail on Sunday who, in his weekly Football Grapevine, claims the Bundesliga behemoth are to add a ‘fourth dimension’ to the race for Bale during the summer transfer window.

Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City are the other three clubs supposedly pursuing Bale, and it would represent quite a coup if Bayern are able to fend off interest from this trio of Premier League giants.

Shepherd reports that battle shall commence upon the conclusion of the season and that, despite this interest from Bayern, it is still Manchester United who are the club most likely to acquire the Wales international.

Manchester United, it is claimed, would be prepared to surpass the world record fee Madrid paid Tottenham for Bale in the summer of 2013 by offering £100 million in an attempt to bring the 25-year-old to Old Trafford.

Louis van Gaal’s side are seemingly set to go all out to land Bale and it is reported they would offer an enormous £300,000-per-week - something that may prove to be beyond Bayern.

Manchester United, Bayern and Chelsea will all be sponsored by Adidas from next season and, with the sportswear giant also having Bale on their talent roster, they would surely be keen to financially assist in ensuring he remains clad in the three stripes, as he is in Madrid.

Where do you think Gareth Bale will end up this summer? Let us know below!
