Bale: I never thought about leaving Real Madrid

While Bale intends to stay, one Real Madrid player on the move is striker Alvaro Morata who is set to join AC Milan in a £61m deal according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

But Salgado doesn't see him playing for any other top club on the continent.

The battle over Mbappe has lasted for months, with Arsenal and Real Madrid having had £87m bids rejected by Monaco. "It is the coach's decision how the team has to play and we will do our best".

Real Madrid attacker Gareth Bale says that he is "happy" at the Bernabeu, and rejects claims that he received an offer from Manchester United this summer.

Bale continues to be linked with a move away from Madrid as Premier League giants Manchester United reportedly circle.

Speaking to Spanish publication Marca the Welsh worldwide said, "I've not read anything, I haven't got a clue about what's going to happen".

"To be honest, six weeks before the final I worked hard to get fit, and to be on the bench was rewarding because I hadn't done that work to not be there at all".

"Obviously during the holidays I haven't done a lot of intense stuff but I'm recovering well", he said. Logically I am a British player and I am always linked with a return home.

Cristiano Ronaldo's former teammate at Real Madrid, Michel Salgado feels the Portuguese will end his football career at the record European football champions, ruling out any prospect of his moving out of Spain. The same thing happened with David Beckham and other Englishmen who came to Spain. It's nothing new. "I'm happy playing for Madrid". Look, I only found out yesterday that (Romelu) Lukaku has signed for Manchester United.

When pressed on whether he expects Ronaldo to stay, he added: "Well, you'll have to ask him".

"But in top football, in Europe, I don't think Ronaldo is going to change clubs".
