Does A Man United Move for Bale Make Sense?

As the summer transfer window rumour mill slowly kicks into life like a theme park attraction juddering into action after a period of inactivity, much of the talk surrounds the fates of two players tipped to travel in opposite directions: David De Gea and Gareth Bale.

The speculation that De Gea has already told United chiefs that he wants to return to his homeland with the Spanish giants refuses to go away. And after a tough end to the season in which he was roundly booed by his own supporters, it is rumoured that Bale is ready to call time on his Spanish expedition to return to England with Manchester United in a swap deal.
