Wales manager, Chris Coleman has insisted Manchester United target Gareth Bale is in no hurry to leave Real Madrid.
United are on the hunt for additional forward and the Welsh international fits the bill with his pace and agility in front of goal.
The 26-year-old was heavily criticized during the last campaign by Madrid supporters, hence speculations about his imminent exit.
“Bale is in no rush to leave Real Madrid,” Coleman said on Sky Sports on Sunday. “Manchester United are who they are, but why is he going to want to leave Madrid?
“I know he came in for a lot of criticism and was seen as the president’s boy because of the huge transfer fee and he was targeted.
“I watched a lot of Madrid’s games and Cristiano Ronaldo, [Karim] Benzema, Isco were having bad times, but ‘Balely’ was targeted for sure and they left him out in the cold.
“The newspapers gave him a hard time when most of the players were having a tough time. But he is strong enough and [will] come through that and I think he will have a good season with Benitez.”
