Bayern target Real ace
Bayern Munich are being linked with a move for Gareth Bale, who looks certain to leave Real Madrid in the summer.
Bale has had a tough season with Los Blancos and looks set to be part of a big clear out at the Bernabeu following the return of Zinedine Zidane as boss, with the Frenchman planning big changes during the close season.
The latest reports claim that Bale will be allowed to pick which club he joins as long as all offers are similar and there will be no shortage of interest in the Wales international who, at 29, still has some fine years ahead of him.
Bayern see him as the ideal player to help replace Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery, who will leave at the end of the season, and will battle with Manchester United and Tottenham for his services.
Bale has a tough decision to make but it is thought he could be tempted by a spell in the Bundesliga rather than returning to the Premier League.
