Dubai, December 31: Spanish club Real Madrid’s footballer, Gareth Bale has dismissed rumours linking him with a move back to the English Premier League.
The Welsh intertiol was asked about a move to Manchester United, who are said to be willing to offer around $150 million to take him back to England, reports Xinhua.
“Go to Manchester United? I am very happy at Madrid, I love the climate and the city,” he said on Tuesday after Real Madrid’s 2–4 loss to Italian team AC Milan in a friendly game here.
Far from thinking about returning to play in England, Bale said he was thinking about extending his current contract with his current team.
“My contract finishes in 2019 and I could sign a new deal,” commented the Welsh intertiol.
Bale is going to have a new neighbour in the Spanish capital with striker Ferndo Torres on the verge of completing his move back to Atletico Madrid.
The former Liverpool and Chelsea striker was greeted by over 200 fans at Madrid’s Adolfo Suarez–Barajas airport when he flew in late Tuesday. IANS
