Both Milan clubs have expressed an interest in Gareth Bale in the past, having both seen the Welshman take them apart almost single-handedly.
In the blue corner, Internazionale received a one-man mauling from the left winger in 2010. After taking Maicon to the cleaners and back, Massimo Moratti must have said to himself "If you can't beat him, sign him."
After Tottenham overcame the Nerazzurri, the links came flooding in.
