Gareth Bale’s talk of Manchester United move “a stupid story” – Agent

Gareth Bale’s agent, Jonathan Barnett, has rubbished talk of a potential move away from Real Madrid this summer.

Reports have suggested that Bale could be sold to Manchester United this summer, with the European champions chasing Monaco youngster, Kylian Mbappe.

However, Barnett insists that there is no truth in the speculation.

“It’s a ridiculous, stupid story,” he told BBC Sport.

Bale has been coveted by United for years, with the club first trying to sign the Welsh winger in 2007 before he joined Spurs. The Red Devils also failed with a £103million bid to hijack his move to Madrid four years ago.

The Welsh winger signed a new contract in October 2016, which ties him to the Santiago Bernabeu side until 2022.
