Manchester United and Louis van Gaal have been chasing that marquee signing since the Dutchman arrived at Old Trafford, but that big name hasn’t arrived yet. The Iron Tulip certainly hasn’t given up the chase, but he has been dealt a major blow as Gareth Bale has confirmed he isn’t planning on moving just yet.
“I will never say never when it comes to going back to the Premier League, because you don’t know what the future holds.” Bale began. “But I am enjoying my time here at Real Madrid. I am very happy.”
“I had conversations with Rafa in the summer and I am delighted about where I am going to be playing this season.”
It certainly sounds as though the Welshman is extremely happy in the Spanish capital, and he doesn’t have any plans to leave in the not too distant future.
At the end of the day he hasn’t really been there that long, but I still firmly believe that we’ll see him at Old Trafford one day – just not for a few years yet.
