Man United transfers: Gareth Bale rules out Real Madrid exit
Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale is focused on winning more trophies at The Bernabeu despite link to Man United
Gareth Bale has ruled out a move to Manchester United despite reports linking the Real Madrid winger with a return to the Premier League.
The Red Devils were speculated to be weighing up a £100m offer for the Wales international with Angel di Maria set to move to Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain.
Bale has won the Champions League and Copa del Rey since he moved to The Bernabeu in an £85.3m deal from Tottenham Hotspur in 2013, but the forward has been persistently linked with a move to United.
But Red Devils target Bale, whose contract is set to run until 2019 in the Spanish capital, has his sights firmly set on winning more silverware with the 10-time European champions.
“I am confident anyway, but it’s great to have the support of the manager and the president and, hopefully, I can repay them now with goals and trophies,” Bale is quoted as saying after Madrid’s 2-0 win against Spurs on Tuesday night.
The Welshman scored 42 goals in 164 Premier League appearances for the north London side during a six-year stay at White Hart Lane before he moved to Madrid in a £85.3m deal in 2013.
