A Strange Tale of Bale, Mbappe and De Gea

Real Madrid appears to be a familiar theme this weekend.

Already in articles published earlier today we`ve spoken about Cristiano Ronaldo and Alvaro Morata, now it`s time to throw the name of Gareth Bale into the hat.

On Saturday, the news vehicle ESPN championed the inference that Manchester United didn`t have the funds to lure David de Gea away from Old Trafford, to the Bernabeu.

Today, Sunday, the good folk of the Sunday Express, are suggesting that Real Madrid may decide to sell someone in order to raise additional transfer funds.

The player being mentioned as possible sale is somebody Manchester United have been linked with before, Gareth Bale.

Primarily, the aforementioned article suggests that 27-year-old Bale may be sacrificed in order for Real Madrid to raise funds to bring the teenage striker sensation, Kylian Mbappe to the club from AS Monaco.

But, with Monaco not being that keen to sell the French youngster and with so many of Europe`s best clubs tracking the 18-year-old, could there be a strange twist to the tale?
