TransferNews : Gareth Bale to snub Manchester United and Chelsea
Chelsea and Manchester United have been sniffing around the Welshman, but he looks set to stay in Spain until the summer at least
Gareth Bale is set to disappoint his English suitors – and will stay at Real Madrid until the end of the season.
The Welsh wizard is high on the wanted list of both Manchester United and Chelsea but he is poised to remain at the Bernebeu and work under new boss Zinedine Zidane.
Bale has been the subject of fevered speculation since Rafa Benitez was sacked earlier this week, writes Neil Moxley in the Sunday People.
But Zidane has already told Cristiano Ronaldo that he is not going anywhere and sources overseas have confirmed that he wants to work with the world’s most expensive player too.
The player himself is not unhappy in the Spanish capital and he still has hopes of adding another Champions League title to his collection.
He would automatically drop into the Europa League if he made the switch to Old Trafford while Chelsea’s best chances of luring the winger to London revolve around a swap deal with Eden Hazard.
Yet there has been no indication that president Florentino Perez is ready to cash in while Bale’s agents remain on standby rather than in full negotiating mode.
“Gareth has been disappointed by the sacking of Rafa cause he was an important coach to him but I will treat him the same way he did”
“He is an important player and a key player in the squad. He is phenomenal and we are going to give him all the care and support he needs” said Zidane
