Bale gives honest answer to Man Utd transfer speculation

Gareth Bale has insisted he is happy at Real Madrid after playing a straight bat to rumours of a summer move to Manchester United.

The Wales star is regularly linked with a return to the Premier League, with United tipped to make a £95million swoop for his services.

But three-times Champions League winner Bale insists that while he isn’t surprised to see the rumours, he fully intends to stay where he is.

“The truth is that I do not read any of that,” he told Marca when asked about Manchester United’s reported interest. “Logically I am a British player and I am always linked with a return home.

“It happened with [David] Beckham, with other Englishmen who came to Spain. It’s nothing new.

“I am happy playing in Madrid, logically interest is interest, but if there has been nothing concrete, no offer, there is nothing to discuss.”
