GARETH Bale had a dream debut season at Real Madrid last time out, scoring crucial goals in the finals of the Champions League and Copa del Rey.
However, over recent months, speculation about a possible move away from the Spanish giants has intensified, and today he has been linked with another big-money move.
That is just one of the stories to have made the headlines, though, with Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal among the Premier League big guns to feature prominently.
