Gareth Bale Yet Again Linked With Man Utd (!) as Premier League Giants Consider Loan Move

​Gareth Bale has been linked once again with a move to Manchester United this summer, as tabloid reports claim they are set to launch a bid to land the Welshman on loan.

In the face of all logic and reason, the 29-year-old has been consistently linked with a return to the Premier League for as long as memory serves, with United being the main culprits.

Last summer, having just finished second in the ​Premier League, they were believed to be 'set' to launch a bid in the region of £100m to secure Bale, who had just scored a mind-bending overhead kick to win ​Real Madrid the Champions League for a third successive year. 

Now, however, the speculation has been adjusted to suit the current situation of both parties. With ​United and Tottenham now unwilling to meet Real's lowered asking price of £75m, ​the Sun sagely report that the Old Trafford side will 'launch a bid' to bring him in on a season-long loan, with the option of a second year thrown in. 

They sell it as reasonable on the basis that it could save Real £50m on wages over the course of the next two seasons, with United willing to pay a 'massive' - but unspecified - loan fee to get it over the line. 

Although his stock has been reduced drastically after a poor season which finished trophy-less for Los Blancos, it seems likely they will want to recoup at least some of the £90m they spent on him in 2013, and a loan spell away - at the end of which he will be 31 - runs the risk of killing those aspirations in the water.

Meanwhile, the Sun also ​'exclusively reveal' that Real officials met with the United hierarchy while they were in London to finalise Eden Hazard's deal over the weekend, with ​Paul Pogba the topic of conversation.

You know the drill on that one by now. £150m deal, United won't budge, Real will consider it, part of their 'summer transfer revolution', etc etc.
