Man Utd and Chelsea have long been linked with a move for Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale, but it seems any hopes that they may have harboured of signing the Welsh wizard have all but disappeared.
Real Madrid President Florentino Perez has made it absolutely clear that Bale will not be going anywhere soon.
“He grew up as a Madrid fan and he wants to be here. He has incredible belief in his own ability. He will not leave,” he said
That is that then, if there is one club in world football that does not have to sell and cannot be forced by another clubs money to sell, it is Real Madrid.
