Bale to United? So Real Madrid signed him just to flash their big balls for a single season and now Louis van Gaal gets to flash his big balls again.

What a load of bollocks.

If this actually did play out then it makes a mockery of what was a mockery in the first place. Real signing a player just because they can and because they're obsessed with being perceived as the top dogs, especially with losing out to Barcelona with Neymar. Bale completing his boyhood dream and then winning the Champions League in his début season and elevating his identity in world football and extending his marketing clout to the highest possible point.

Did Levy get a sell-on clause in there somewhere? Probably not. The irony? United bid more for Bale during that infamous summer than Madrid did.

Conclusion? Some Welsh kid in Spain is after an improved contract already.
