Real Madrid winger and reported Chelsea target Gareth Bale has revealed that he has no intention of leaving the Bernabeu this summer.
The Welshman endured a tough second season in Madrid following his world-record £86 million move in 2013 and found himself jeered by the club’s fans regularly.
Consequently, speculation had mounted that a summer exit was on the cards, with the Blues and Manchester United jousting for his signature.
However, the 25-year-old is adamant that he is staying in the Spanish capital.
“Of course, yes [I will be at Madrid next season],”he told The Sun. “I’m a Real Madrid player and I’ll carry on as normal. I am enjoying it and hopefully I can continue to.
“I feel settled. I’m looking forward now to playing and winning more trophies. My goal is to keep improving, performing and to win as many titles as I can.”
