Daily Bale: Spurs to swap Gareth Bale for Cristiano Ronaldo – Manchester United go for Suarez

THE Daily Bale: Anorak’s daily look at Tottenham Hotspur star Gareth Bale in the news.

The Sun leads with a “WORLD EXCLUSIVE”.  Gareth Bale could be on his way to Manchester United. 
The story is that if Cristiano Ronaldo doesn’t return to Old Trafford then United will buy Bale.

The Sun says that Spurs are “desperate to keep Bale but a world record fee would be impossible to reject”.

The story contains the same number of words from the Spurs  hierarchy it does from United’s: zero. “Ronaldo-Suarez-Bale combination can do wonders for Real”

And not only them. Experts say the trio could work at Liverpool, Manchester United, Crystal Palace, Leeds United or Hull. The scoop begins:

Imagine this: Cristiano Ronaldo, Luis Suarez and Gareth Bale playing up front for Real Madrid next season.

If we’re imagining news, why not imagne Messi as well, or Pele, Law and Best? When it comes to imagining news, Goal is limited “Ronaldo To Manchester United – Bale To Real Madrid”

This will undoubtedly be the two biggest transfers in world football history if they were to go through. However, before Manchester Utd fans get too excited, there is the small matter of a release clause in Ronaldo’s contract, which is reported in the The Sun as being a staggering billion euros, which at today’s exchange rates works out to around a mind boggling £810 million. If you believe the Gareth Bale valuations this equates to ten Gareth Bales!

Metro: “The Tipster: Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain ready to do battle for Gareth Bale”

Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are weighing up world-record bids to tempt Tottenham to sell Gareth Bale but Spurs are ready to dig in their heels to keep the club’s prize asset at White Hart Lane.
Yes, it’s time to brace yourself for another summer saga as chairman Daniel Levy tip-toes his way through those murky transfer waters.

Tip-toes? Surely, wades through the virtual cash..?
