Following an impressive 4-1 victory over Juventus in front of his hometown, Welsh star Gareth Bale has promised to remain at Real Madrid come next season.
He revealed that he was happy being at the Spanish side and he committed his future to its cause.
“We are winning trophies and I am happy. I have signed a long term contract at Madrid. My family is happy and I am happy, so yes we will continue what we are doing,” Bale declared.
There were strong rumours linking the former Tottenham forward with a move to Manchester United this summer. He joined Real for record transfer fee of £85 million in 2013 but he has struggled to match expectations. His recent injury streak seemed to worsen the situation until the titles came in. One week the La Liga and the next a second third Champions League in four years. Continue reading GARETH BALE INSISTS ON REMAINING AT MADRID
Premier League giant Manchester United have reportedly opened a line of communication with Spanish side Real Madrid.
United are seeking a deal that would bring back Welsh star Gareth Bale to England after his world record transfer out in 2013.
Diario Gol says United are desperate for the services of the former Spurs star and that Mourinho hopes to convince his former club to sell the struggling player to him. The report claims Mourinho reached out to Real president Florentino Perez as he wants Bale to be his new star at Old Trafford.
United are a long time interested party but Bale could accede this time as he struggled this season. The 27-year old winger is in the race to make the Champions League final in June as he remains sidelined. He recently agreed to a new deal that would tie him up at the Bernabeu for years but reports in Spain say Madrid are mulling over the ideal of selling him.

Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville reckons that Eden Hazard has the capability to become as good as Neymar or Gareth Bale, but he says thatHazard has struggled to do so because of consistency issues.
The 26-year-old came up with an incredible reputation as one of the highly talented youngsters in world football. He has been at Chelsea for five years after having joined the club for around £ 32 million. In this period, he has managed to win several honours including the Europa League and the Premier league title. On an individual basis, Hazard was crowned as the PFA Player of the Year during the 2014-15 season.
However, Hazard failed to improve on this campaign as he had a season to forget in the 2015-16 campaign. Now, though, he appears to be one of the top players at Chelsea once again, although not necessarily the best. Hazard has scored 10 goals and created 4 in 25 appearancesthis season.

Real Madrid star, Gareth Bale says his long throws could be an extra weapon in Wales’ arsenal after terrorizing Austria’s defence with series of accurate deliveries into the box during Thursday’s 2-2 World Cup qualifying draw.
One of the 27-year old several throw-ins was converted to Wales’ second goal by Kevin Wimmer (own goal) in Vienna and which he subsequently caused panic on many other occasions with ball in hand.
And Bale, better known for his tireless speed and prowess with the ball at his feet – has no reservations about adding dangerous throw-ins to his already well-stocked attacking prowess. He hopes it would be useful for them in their other upcoming World Cup Qualifying matches as well.
“I will like to hear what my teammates have to say concerning that and what the manager says, I suppose it is another weapon we have got and, if we need to use it, we will use it,” he told reporters on Saturday. Continue reading BALE’S LONG THROW-INS, ANOTHER WEAPON
Roller coaster is the word for the Madrid fans at the moment as the Whites seem to be defying the odds quite consistently.
The improbable Barcelona victory and then, the improbable Wolfsburg loss, now that’s a bit too much to take over a period of just 5 days.
A 0-2 loss at the Volkswagen Arena yesterday hurt Madrid’s hopes of reaching the Europe semis big time.
The Madrid players actually might have been carrying the hangover of that Barcelona victory with themselves as they lost the game within first half an hour itself.
The defence was so relaxed and complacent as if they just did not assume Wolfsburg to attack so vociferously in the initial moments.
As Steve McManaman said, and it would sound very true to those who would have seen the proceedings, it was no better than a school boyish defence from Madrid.
They did wake up after a point, but, only to find out that it was all too late. Wolfsburg was always going to park the bus with that sort of advantage.
It’s not the end, not with the unpredictability that Madrid has shown in the recent weeks. There’s got to be immense effort from the Blancos when they meet Wolfsburg at their fortress come Wednesday. But, there can’t be anyone disagreeing to the fact that this is a big low for them, losing the first leg this way, especially coming from that Camp Nou result. Continue reading Madrid may reach Europe semi’s this time
The sacking of Rafael Benitez has not pleased Gareth Bale a single bit.
He is absolutely furious and he has even started contemplating an away move.
Benitez had been playing Bale in the central position and the Wales international had been flourishing.
But, now, with the exit of the 55-year old, it’s not certain whether Bale would continue in centre.
According to the sources, Bale would be ready to stay at Real Madrid only if he gets assurances regarding the role that he will be playing under the new manager coming in.
It’s not a hidden fact that Bale is a highly demanded player amongst English clubs.
Manchester United had shown interest in him in the summer itself, but, had not succeeded in landing him.
They would now surely be looking to pounce on this opportunity to try and lure him to Old Trafford.
But, it will not be straightforward for the Red Devils as the other two English heavyweights i.e. City and Chelsea will be in the race as well.
Since joining Real Madrid in 2013, Bale has been a fruitful performer.
His strike rate has been fantastic every season and he is close to completing half century of goals for the club in all competitions. Continue reading Rafael Benitez has not pleased Gareth Bale a single bit
