Not even a world record bid, reportedly set at $150 million, will convince Real Madrid to allow a Gareth Bale transfer to Manchester United, according to a report.
Manchester United is still reportedly chasing Bale, who transferred from Tottenham Hotspur to Real Madrid for over $115 million, but ESPN reported that there is no interest from the Spanish club to make any deals with any club in this transfer season.
In recent interviews, the 26-year-old winger has stated that he is happy with Real Madrid, which is his third team after playing for Southampton (2006 to 2007) and Tottenham Hotspur (2007 to 2013). Bale has been with the Spanish club since 2013 and has 28 goals in 59 appearances for the team.
In Real Madrid’s most recent Spanish Primer league action, Bale’s squad settled for a 0-0 draw with Sporting Gijon. Bale tweeted that his primary focus is with the Spanish club.
Frustrating result but plenty of positives, great to be back with #losblancos. Now head down and focus on doing better next week
