Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale is uninterested in a move to Manchester United as he thinks it would be a ‘step down’ in his playing career. The Wales international has won 10 trophies since his switch to the Bernabeu in the summer of 2013.
According to Diario Gol, the 28-year-old is prepared to stay put with the European champions for the season despite the constant speculation over his future. Los Blancos have continuously maintained their pursuit of Monaco’s Kylian Mbappe this summer, and his potential arrival could put the Welshman under immense pressure amid competition from the likes of Isco and Marco Asensio.
United boss Jose Mourinho had highlighted earlier this month that he could jump at the possibility of signing the former Tottenham star, but he soon dismissed the suggestion after Bale participated in the 2-1 European Super Cup triumph over his side.
The Red Devils clinched an EFL Cup and Europa League double during Mourinho’s first season in-charge last season but Diarol Gol insist that Bale does not hold an interest after lifting three Champions League titles in four seasons at Madrid.
Manchester United are unlikely to ponder over their failure to sign a new winger this summer with Jose Mourinho stating that he is content with the three signings (Victor Lindelof, Romelu Lukaku, and Nemanja Matic) made during this summer’s transfer window.
