Manchester United have informed Real Madrid that they don’t want Gareth Bale in this summer transfer window, after talks with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Gareth Bale has been forced down the pecking order at the Bernabeu after falling out with the manager Zinedine Zidane.
The Welshman, who earns £600,000-a-week wages for chilling in the medical room and occasionally featuring on the bench, has revealed of his desire to stay in Madrid and intends to see out his contract at the Bernabéu, which runs until June 2022.
However, Zidane is very keen to get the massive salary of the 29-year-old off his books and thus, attempted to initiate negotiations with Manchester United for the Welsh winger.
It’s been reported that Real Madrid were willing to subsidize a part of Bale’s £600,000-a-week wages and Ed Woodward was keen on the transfer at the end of the last season.
But after conversations with the manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Manchester United have decided against the transfer of the Welshman.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is said to be against the idea of Bale to United. The Norwegian would like to strengthen his Right-Wing, but at the same time, he wants to move away from the idea of ‘superstar’ signings.
The recent acquisition of Daniel James from Swansea City and the links to young and talented players like Aaron Wan-Bissaka proves that the Gaffer would rather re-build a side with talented youngsters instead of going for the big names.
Ole, during an interview with Man United’s official website last month, had revealed of his desire to sign the players with right profile:
‘In my view, the best players have always been the best people, so you have to have that value system, a certain kind of attitude about you to make a Man United player.
‘But you’ve got to have the quality too. Our fans want to see exciting players, they want to get off their seats, they want to see defenders defend… You have to have a work ethic. So we’re scouting the market trying to find the right ones.’

While Jose Mourinho would have jumped on this idea, it seems like Gareth Bale isn’t the man for Ole afterall!
