Could Gareth Bale return to the British islands after just two seasons with Real Madrid? According to the Daily Star, Manchester United are no longer interested in signing Dutch wonder kid Memphis Depay, focusing their efforts in Gareth Bale from now on.

With both Real Madrid and United already set to negotiate De Gea's imminent arrival to the Bernabéu, Bale could also play a big role in these talks. Manchester United could offer De Gea and an undisclosed amount of money for Gareth Bale's talents, an offer that Real Madrid could consider.

Still, Los Blancos want Bale to be a part of their long-term future. Although his season hasn't been nearly as brilliant or impressive as his first year in the Spanish capital, Bale has a bright future ahead of him and Real Madrid are not keen on parting ways with him, no matter what United offer in exchange this time.
