Bale not for sale, says Real boss

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has told English clubs to forget about trying to sign Gareth Bale.

Perez said the former Tottenham star, whose car was attacked after Real lost to Barcelona recently, won't be leaving anytime soon.

"We shall never listen to any offers for Bale," Perez told Marca. "He is the key to the club's future, just as I cannot imagine a future without Cristiano Ronaldo."

The Welsh star has been linked with a return to the Premier League this summer after a section of the Bernabeu crowd turned on him in recent weeks.

Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea have been talked about as possible destinations. - Wire Services.
