Gareth Bale might complete a sensational move to Newcastle

Newcastle's £53million move for Gareth Bale could set off a remarkable chain of transfers across Europe's biggest leagues. Bayern have long been lining up a move for the Manchester City star, and were close to signing him nearly 12 months ago before he suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury.  Bale has been unhappy in Madrid for some time, and it is now expected that he will leave the Spanish capital when the transfer window next opens.  Elsewhere, David Beckham's new Inter Miami side are said to be prepared to match his Real Madrid salary to bring him to their new MLS outfit, while Tottenham are also reportedly keen to seal his emotional return to north London.
