What the papers say Embattled star Gareth Bale has no chance of transferring from Real Madrid to Bayern Munich, the 29-year-old’s agent has reportedly said.  Jonathan Barnett told Sky Sports “obviously, Gareth’s situation at Real hasn’t improved,” in comments carried by the Daily Mirror. And he acknowledged the Welshman and former Tottenham forward “could fit” in as part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s revitalisation of Manchester United.  “I think he could do very well – he is still one of the best players in the world, but it is very unlikely,” Barnett said.
