• Bayern Munich emerge as contenders to sign Bale

    Gareth Bale of Real Madrid

    Bayern Munich could launch a move for Gareth Bale after ending their interest in Leroy Sane, according to reports.

    The Bundesliga champions had made the Manchester City man their leading transfer target as they seek replacements for departed wing duo Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben.

    However, Sane suffered a knee injury during last weekend’s Community Shield clash with Liverpool and could be out of action until March.

    Bayern are now set to turn their attention to Bale, who could still leave Real Madrid before the European transfer window closes on 2 September, reports Sport1.

    Madrid pulled the plug on Bale’s proposed move to the Chinese Super League last month.

    However, they may now be willing to sanction his departure in order to free up funds for their pursuit of PSG forward Neymar.
