Real Madrid News: Gareth Bale to Manchester United? His agent speaks

Gareth Bale has time again been linked with a move to Manchester United with Jose Mourinho making his admiration for the Welshman public in the summer. Many thought that it would only before Bale puts on the red of Manchester with Kylian Mbappe being heavily linked with a move to the Spanish capital.

However, with Mbappe moving to PSG, the fervour around the rumour has died down considerably and now, Bale’s agent Jonathan Barnett has made it crystal clear that the winger has now wishes to leave Real this summer.

“I really respect Raiola and Jorge Mendes, we are like the Ronaldo, Messi and Neymar of agents,” he said in an interview with Manchester Evening News. “Bale? I think he’s worth as much as Neymar. He loves Real Madrid and doesn’t want to leave. Gareth does not need Ronaldo to leave Real Madrid, he is already a top star of the club.”

“Bale is such a positive example for children. You will never see him in a fast food. He goes to bed early and I don’t think he is worse than Neymar. He can also battle it out for the Ballon d’Or in the future. When he joined Real Madrid Florentino Perez gifted me a pen to sign contracts. I always have it with me now.

“I think no Serie A club can afford to buy Bale. There was the interest of a top Italian club but I can’t name it. Tottenham, however, refused to sell him.”

Whilst Bale might not want to leave Madrid but one could easily envision wholesale changes to be made to the Madrid squad with the Blancos well off the pace in La Liga and already out of Copa del Rey. With Bale being out for a large portion of the season so far, questions have risen as to whether he still has the durability.

The Champions League campaign has certainly now become a make or break for Zinedine Zidane and his men. And even though Bale feels comfortable at Madrid at the moment, his future will certainly be under huge speculation if Madrid fail to get into their groove at the European stage.
