Bayern could be a surprise destination for Bale, with the Bundesliga champions on the hunt for a new winger.
The German side are the new front-runners for Gareth Bale’s signature, after ending their interest in Leroy Sane.
With the deal to sign Leroy Sane from Manchester City now dead in the water, Niko Kovac is after another winger to help bolster Bayern’s forward line this season.
A signing of Inter Milan’s Ivan Perisic appears imminent and the Bavarians have also been tied to Juventus forward Mario Mandzukic. In addition, a story in Sport1, claims that the German giants will make a move for Bale in the coming weeks, looking to strike a similar deal to the one that saw them land James Rodriguez on a two-year loan.
The oft-injured, but undeniably skilled, 30-year-old is peaking Bayern’s interest heavily. With Real Madrid making a serious run at Paris Saint-Germain megastar Neymar, Los Blancos may need to dump some salary in an effort to stay somewhat financially responsible. Madrid pulled the plug on Bale’s proposed move to the Chinese Super League last month.
Gareth Bale played 30 minutes in Real Madrid’s loss in a friendly against Roma on penalties on Sunday, despite uncertainty over the forward’s future at the Santiago Bernabeu.
