Florentino Perez has laid the hammer down when it comes to the future of star attacker Gareth Bale.
Linked with an audacious bid from Manchester United, Bale isn’t going anywhere according to Real Madrid’s president.

Saying he “couldn’t imagine” Real Madrid without Bale or Cristiano Ronaldo, Perez declared the club’s allegiance to the 25-year-old Welsh star in no uncertain terms.
“Bale is a key player. He has already done so much for the team and is a key part of our club’s future,” added Perez.
“Every club knows that Gareth Bale will never leave Real Madrid and that the club will not discuss their star, no matter how much is offered.”
Maybe this will finally quell that ghost haunting White Hart Lane (We kid).
