Real Madrid's Gareth Bale Rules Out Man United Move

Gareth Bale says he is not interested in speculation linking him with a move away from Real Madrid in the transfer window.
The Wales forward came off the bench after 77 minutes in Saturday's 4-1 win over Juventus in Cardiff as Real Madrid secured a third title in four seasons.

The 27-year-old, who agreed a new deal in October lasting until 2022 worth £350,000 a week after tax and with a €1bn buyout clause, was adamant that he wants to remain at the club he joined in September 2013 from Tottenham Hotspur for £85m, which was then a world-record fee.
“I’ve signed a long-term contract at Madrid,” he said.

“My family is happy and I am happy so, yeah, we will continue what we are doing. We are winning trophies and I am happy.
"So yes, three Champions Leagues in four seasons will do that.

"It's incredible, it's the reason I came to Real Madrid: to win trophies. And we're enjoying winning them at the moment.
"To play a final in your home city is incredible, but to win it is even better. So yes, an incredible occasion and great to experience.
“I’ve worked double sessions for three, four weeks to get myself ready for this, to get myself fit, recover from the surgery – which still has a little more healing to do – but I will be able to rest in the summer, do some more rehab and then come next season stronger. It’s been a tough year with a lot of football and the injuries, but the main thing for me is to get my ankle sorted and give it that rest it needs. I came back too early from the surgery. But I still finished the season happy, it’s a great finish with another trophy.”
United tried to sign Bale in 2013 when David Moyes succeeded Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford but were beaten to his signature.

The Welshman’s representatives have dismissed reports linking him with a return to the Premier League, stressing that he has no desire to leave the most successful club in global football. Given that he has now won seven major trophies in only four years in Spain, it is hard to argue that this Madrid side is up there with some of the most successful in history.
"I don't even read anything, so I don't know what to say," he said of the speculation. 
“We’re used to this.

“We have won three Champions Leagues in four seasons so we have to be in that category. All we can keep doing is keep working hard and hopefully there will be more to come. I think we can get better.

“We are still quite young as a whole team and we have a great squad. We haven’t just got a great eleven, we have a great squad so if any injuries come along there are other people who can do a job. We are strong and confident and the plan is to win more.

“This adds to the history of this club. This club is the biggest in Champions League history ever and now we have even more. It’s great to be a part of.”
