Could the BBC be about to come off the air?

According to reports in the UK, Real Madrid star Gareth Bale is preparing to snub a potential contract extension at the Bernabéu in favour of a move back to the Premier League this summer.

Bale takes on Ricardo Rodríguez in Real's Champions League win over Wolfsburg on Tuesday.

British newspaper the Sun claims that Manchester United and Manchester City - where Pep Guardiola is to take over as manager next season - are primed to battle it out for his services.

Real are believed to be out to reward Bale for his fine form this term by handing him a big-money extension on his current deal, which runs out in 2019.

However, the 26-year-old could have other plans.
