Real Madrid boss Rafa Benitez has confirmed that the club’s record signing Gareth Bale is going nowhere just as star striker Karim Benzema.
Both players have been linked with Premier League clubs in the last few months. Those rumours have been growing intense as the close of the transfer window approaches. Bale is reportedly the target of Manchester United, who are ready to spend big once again this summer. The star was signed from Spurs two years ago for a world record fee of £ 85 million, which eclipsed that of Cristiano Ronaldo who moved from United.
After a brilliant first season at the Santiago Bernebeu, Bale has increasingly found himself being the target of fans should the results not be as expected. Due to the increasing criticism that does not appear to have reduced going into the new campaign, Bale is reportedly considering his future at the club. The arrival of a new manager in the form of Rafa Benitez appears to have changed his mind for the time being. The former Liverpool boss always likes an attacking player with a defensive mentality and this appears to have worked in favour of Bale staying at Madrid.

Rafael Benitez has already been confirmed to be the new manager of Real Madrid as he replaced Carlo Ancelotti who was sacked a few weeks ago. The Spanish manager signed a 3 year long contract with Real Madrid and now the president, Florentino Perez is hoping that with the arrival of Benitez, the club will be able to secure major titles which they failed to do in this recently concluded season.
A lot of doubts are surrounding Real Madrid involving Benitez and what formation he will be utilizing. Gareth Bale had a very impressive debut season as a player of Real Madrid as he helped the team in securing a Champions League and Copa del Rey title but Bale struggled to do anything really noteworthy ever since then.
The agent of Gareth Bale is Jonathan Barnett and he has revealed that the Welsh player is not feeling comfortable playing down the right wing and Bale is wishing that Benitez will use different formations as well as switch the position of players.
Manchester United is targeting Gareth Bale and the Premier League club is hoping they can sign him during the summer transfer window and if Benitez does not fulfill Gareth Bale’s wishes of being moved away from the right wing, the Welsh player might be interested in joining another club where he can perform at his best.

Since retiring from playing football at a competitive level, Zinedine Zidane went on to join Real Madrid’s internal staff as the Frenchman turned into the technical director of the Spanish club as well as becoming the assistant coach of Carlo Ancelotti.
Zidane also aids in the process of searching around for potential new players that could be signed to the team and he has rejected rumors that were involving Gareth Bale with a move away from Real Madrid during the approaching summer transfer window.
Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United are some of the top European clubs that have been linked with Gareth Bale as the Welshman attracted the attention of the Premier League but Zinedine Zidane stated that Real Madrid has no plans or intentions of selling him.
Real Madrid’s Zinedine Zidane said: ‘’Real Madrid buy the best players in the world. They don’t sell them. Of course other clubs will be interested in him, he would improve any squad in the world, but the president has said he is not for sale and that is because he is not for sale. That will be the answer to Manchester United or any other club that asks the question.’’ Read more »
