Nothing About Manchester United To Discuss - Bale

Nothing About Manchester United To Discuss - Bale

Gareth Bale has denied any knowledge of an interest from Manchester United and again insisted he's happy at Real Madrid.

One minute Bale's for sale and could leave the Santiago Bernabeu to accommodate this and that player. The next the Welshman wouldn't be sold regardless. It'll then go through a similar cycle until we're told he WOULD become Zinedine Zidane's sacrificial Welsh lamb.

Such a process is then repeated in various orders or alternating spins.

However, when questioned by Marca about reported United interest Bale played this down saying there's nothing to discuss and he's happy in Madrid.

'The truth is that I do not read any of that. Logically I am a British player and I am always linked with a return home. It happened with Beckham, with other Englishmen who came to Spain. 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.'

Bale said he doesn't know if Cristiano Ronaldo will remain at the Bernabeu next season and went as fair to claim, such is his detachment from, well, basically anything, he didn't even know about Romelu Lukaku joining United recently.

He said: 'I've not read anything, I haven't got a clue about what's going to happen. Look, I only found out yesterday that [Romelu] Lukaku has signed for Manchester United. I honestly don't know.'

I think someone is telling a little porky here.

Now working hard in pre-season as Bale, who turned 28 a few days ago, looks to put a frustrating campaign last time round behind him, albeit one where he won La Liga and the Champions League again, the Welsh international said the ankle was 'fine' and he's looking forward to putting a season that 'annoyed' him in the past.

'[The ankle is] fine. Obviously, during the holidays I haven't done a lot of intensive stuff on the area, in order to recover well. I was annoyed last season because you always try to return to help the team, and give the best of yourself. Maybe I should have had more time recovering, and not forcing things, but now there is no pain. The ankle feels strong and I'm ready.'

Bale had signed a new five and a half year deal at Los Blancos just last October.
