No Manchester United bid for Bale, insists Madrid president Perez

The Blancos supremo dismissed rumours that the Old Trafford outfit have made an approach for the Welshman, adding that he would not even listen to any offers for the 25-year-old.

FLORENTINO PEREZ INSISTS that Real Madrid have not received any bid from Manchester United for Gareth Bale and ruled out the possibility of selling the winger at any price.

The Welshman has been regularly linked with the Old Trafford outfit in recent months, while they also expressed an interest in the winger before he left Tottenham for Los Blancos in 2013.

United boss Louis van Gaal also recently refused to rule out a bid, telling reporters: “I cannot discus that with you. I discuss that with my CEO and not with anyone of the media.”

But Perez, heading the Madrid delegation to Dubai for a high-profile friendly against AC Milan, has made it clear that Bale is going nowhere.

“We have not received any offer from Manchester United or any other club for Gareth Bale,” the Blancos president told reporters.

“What’s more, we would never listen to any offers for Bale whatever the amount.”

The 25-year-old Bale has netted 33 goals in 66 games since arriving in the Spanish capital in August 2013 for a world-record €100 million transfer fee, picking up winner’s medals in the Champions League, Club World Cup, Copa del Rey and Uefa Super Cup in 2014 to boot.
