German Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich are reportedly plotting a loan move for Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale this summer.
This is according to the publication from the stables of The Sun which claimed that the Bavarian giants want to rescue the Welsh international star from his nightmarish spell at Real Madrid.
Gareth Bale ended the just concluded campaign on the fringes of the first team at Real Madrid.
The 29-year-old was dropped from the Real Madrid starting XI for the last three games of the season by manager Zinedine Zidane who’s keen to get the ex-Southampton and Tottenham Hotspur player off the playing squad.
Gareth Bale signed for Real Madrid in 2013 for a then world-record fee of £85.3m but he has been transfer-listed at Real Madrid though he is keen to see out the remaining three years on his existing contract.
According to the aforementioned report from The Sun, Bayern Munich want to sign Bale on loan for the new season with an option to sign him permanently afterwards.
The Bavarian giants are ready to pay his £350,000 weekly wages in their search for replacements for the duo of Arjen Robben and Frank Ribery who have left Bayern Munich upon the expiration of their respective contracts this summer.
Premier League clubs like Manchester United and Chelsea are also interested in the Welsh player but his hefty weekly salary is a stumbling block in their quest to sign him.
