Real Madrid want to keep Gareth Bale at the Santiago Bernabeu and have given the forward no timescale on his return from injury, according to Sky Sports’ Spanish football expert Guillem Balague.

“Let’s quote Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, who said, ‘Poor Gareth, he is a little bit desperate because he wanted to recover and he is injured,’ Balague told Sky Sports News. “It seems like they have told him no date to return, forget Spurs, forget the date, get fit. Because what is important, as Cristiano Ronaldo showed last season, is how you finish the last three months of the season.

“Now Perez insists that he is here to stay and he wants him to stay, so do his representatives.”
