There are now ten games or less left for the majority of Premier League teams and that means attention is already starting to turn to the transfer window in the summer.
The main trophies are yet to be handed out across Europe but already the rumour mill has started and there are multiple stories today suggesting that Gareth Bale will be sold by Real Madrid.
The Welshman has just about won it all in Spain since making the move from the Premier League but it appears that his relationship with the Champions League winners looks set to come to an end.
A return to England is surely likely for a player who at his best has been one of the best forwards in the world and with his remarkable goal from the Champions League Final against Liverpool still fresh in the mind, there surely won't be a shortage of suitors for the former Southampton starlet.
The 29-year-old has had his injury problems which does lower his market but he clearly is still able to perform at the highest level and that means there could be a scramble for his services this summer as Los Blancos look to overhaul a squad which has badly unperformed in La Liga this term
We pick out three clubs that would benefit from signing Bale when the window opens at the end of the campaign...
The Old Trafford club would surely be the first team knocking on the Real door for Bale if he does become available, with the Premier League giants fitting the bill perfectly. Alexis Sanchez has been a bigger flop than anyone could imagine and that means the Red Devils desperately need to add some more quality in wide areas. The Welshman has all the pace and power to once again be one of the best players in the Premier League and with United looking to make a splash this summer to get back to the top, Bale could be the perfect addition.
Spurs have been quieter than a door-mouse in the transfer market in recent months but this summer could finally be the time that we see the north London club unlock the war chest. The club are set to move to swanky new stadium and what better way to do that than with the return of their former hero. Bale loves Spurs and the fans love him, but can the club find the cash to lure the 29-year-old back?
A slightly left field choice for the services of Bale but the German giants are going to be looking very closely for wide players this summer which should lead them to assess the Real Madrid star. Robben and Ribery are way past their best which means that their squad is going to need heavy investment in the summer, especially after struggling in the Bundesliga behind Dortmund and although Bale is no spring chicken, he might be the ideal man to bridge the gap for the Bavarian monsters.
