Gareth Bale has indicated that he will be staying at Real Madrid next season.
The Welshman has been linked with a move to Manchester United after an indifferent season in the Spanish capital and in light of the Old Trafford club’s interest in him.
The former Tottenham Hotspur man took to Twitter to assess the season and said he cannot wait to return to action next term, however.
“Not the end of the season we had hoped for, we always want to win trophies!,” he ‘Tweeted’. “Will be working hard in the off season and looking forward to coming back next season stronger with Real Madrid, Hala Madrid!”.
Wales coach Chris Coleman also said he believed Bale will still be in Spain next season.
Coleman called Bale up to his 23-man squad to face Belgium in a Euro 2016 qualifying match and was asked about his key man’s future.
“The [Real Madrid] president thinks a lot of Gareth,” said Coleman. “Unless Gareth wants to leave, which I don’t think is the case, then I don’t think he’ll go anywhere. I don’t think he wants to leave.”
