Wales Winger Gareth Bale might have quench any sign of his departure away from Real Madrid by declaring he is happy in Real Madrid.
Bale has been linked with a move away from the Merengues amidst reports that his place is under threat in Madrid, but after helping the Los Blancos to a 2-1 win over Manchester United in the UEFA Super Cup on Tuesday, Bale has quenched any rumor of him departing, declaring his happiness to stay at the club.
“What do you want me to say? I’m concentrating on my football, I’m concentrating on getting my fitness up,” Bale said.
“I’m happy I’m playing football, I’m winning trophies, so yeah, I don’t want to move, there’s not really much more I can say.
“The club hasn’t said anything, we’ve spoke, they’re happy with everything and, yeah, for me, I just want to concentrate now on getting fit, on getting ready for the new season and playing as well as I can.”
“Obviously, I feel like I’m happy to fight for my place,” Bale said when the battle for a starting berth was put to him.
“We’re all fighting for our places anyway. It’s nothing new in football, it happens at every club, you just carry on like normal.”
