Man United long-term target Gareth Bale will no longer be leaving Real Madrid as widely speculated at some quarters ahead of the summer transfer window.

It was claimed that the former Tottenham player is unhappy at the Bernabeu and would be seeking to leave after failing to please manager Zinedine Zidane for regular playing time.

The reports had claimed that the future for the Welshman is unlikely with Real Madrid and could return to England with Man United as his long-term suitor.

However, Gareth Bale’s agent Jonathan Barnett has dismissed the claims, stressing that his client still has two-years left to the end of his career at Real Madrid and will see it through before leaving.

Jonathan Barnett therefore, described manager Zinedine Zidane as ungrateful, claiming that the France international does not want to coach Gareth Bale but noted his client is happy at Madrid and not in a hurry to leave.

The agent stressed that Gareth Bale is as good as his teammates and the decision to leave him out is only a personal one for the former Real Madrid player.

However, Man United will have to face its major target Jadon Sancho who is available in the summer transfer window but for a fee of £100 million.
