Manchester United may not have given up on Real Madrid's Gareth Bale

Rumours about a Gareth Bale exit won't go away. Here's the latest on Real Madrid and Man United from FC TV's Sid Lowe.

As always, Transfer Talk has its finger on the pulse when it comes to all the latest rumours and gossip. See all the latest deals here.

TOP STORY: United haven't given up on Bale

Although Wales national team manager Chris Coleman believes his star player Gareth Bale won't be leaving Real Madrid anytime soon, a story in the Sunday Express begs to differ. The outlet says that Manchester United haven't given up hope on bringing the 26-year-old to Old Trafford from the Bernabeu.

Real Madrid's injection of youthful signings may force out fringe players

ESPN FC's Sid Lowe weighs in on the probability of Sergio Ramos staying with Real Madrid and Manchester United turning their attention to Nicolás Otamendi once again.

Real Madrid on Friday afternoon announced the signing of Real Zaragoza central defender Jesus Vallejo on a six-year deal with the Spain under-19 captain, fresh from leading the side to European glory in Greece, to remain at the Segunda Division club on loan for the 2015-16 campaign.

It was yet another recent statement of long-term intent from the Bernabeu. In addition to Vallejo -- a commanding defender with sufficient maturity at just 18 years of age to have worn the captain's armband toward the...

Cristiano Ronaldo or Laurent Koscielny: Whose skill is better?

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti says that Real Madrid might consider offloading Cristiano Ronaldo if a record sum is offered.
ESPN FC's Craig Burley is at odds as to why Rafael Benitez would not originally say Cristiano Ronaldo is the best player at Real Madrid.

While limbering up with his Real Madrid teammates in Shanghai on Wednesday afternoon, Cristiano Ronaldo executed an ultra-casual, no-look pass that garnered hushed awe from the fans in attendance.

Just to top it all off, Ronaldo also chucked in a nonchalant wave to the crowd just for fun.

Meanwhile, in North London, it would appear that Arsenal's...

Cristiano Ronaldo the centre of attention for Real Madrid mascots

Even with Real Madrid's plethora of star names to choose from, it would appear that the young Chinese fans in attendance at the Spanish side's recent preseason friendly against Inter Milan in Guangzhou were only interested in seeing one man.

Indeed, several of the starstruck player mascots gravitated away from the lesser lights they were supposed to accompany onto the pitch in favour of swarming around Cristiano Ronaldo before kick-off.

Jese Rodriguez, Nacho and Casemiro all vital for Benitez's squad rotation

Rafa Benitez discusses his pleasure with his sides performance in a 3-0 win in their ICC match against Inter, but knows there is room to improve.
Inter Milan could only standby and watch as Real Madrid ran riot.

Rafa Benitez has not shied away from the fact that he will place big importance on Real Madrid as a squad and not just Real Madrid as a team this season. The former Napoli and Liverpool coach was one of the modern pioneers of squad rotation and that is something he will continue in the Spanish capital.

The Madrid-born coach has been criticised for his rotation policy in the past but, in contrast, former Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti was questioned over his stubborn approach in failing to give a rest...

Real Madrid, Barca, Sevilla's different approaches to the transfer market

ESPN FC's Craig Burley speculates that the Spanish giants might be holding out on selling Sergio Ramos' to Manchester United with their eye on a trade for David de Gea.

The cast list? David De Gea, Sergio Ramos, Aleix Vidal, Marco Asensio, Arda Turan, Yevhen Konoplyanka, Steven N'Zonzi, Adil Rami, Danilo, Nicolas Otamendi, Gael Kakuta and Ciro Immobile. The film title? "Star Wars: The Revenge of The Transfer Market."

If you pose the following question -- "Were transfers always as bizarre, tense, idiosyncratic and eccentric as they are now?" -- the answer would have to be a resounding no. When clubs could buy at any time of the year business was easier to do,...
