Gareth Bale committed to Real Madrid stay – agent

The agent of Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale has reiterated the player wants to stay at this club beyond this summer despite the club’s wishes.

Jonathan Barnett admitted he did not know if Coach Zinedine Zidane wanted to continue with the Welshman beyond this season but for Bale there were no doubts.

The 29-year-old has been the subject of intense speculation that he may leave the Santiago Bernabeu this summer.

However, Bale’s current contract runs through until 2022 and a buying club for the former Tottenham man cannot be found.

“He wants to stay,” Barnett told Sky Sports News.

“I am not sure that Mr Zidane wants him to stay but at the moment Gareth wants to stay.

“He has got a contract, he will quite happily see it out until 2022. He has been and is, in my opinion, one of the top three or four players in the world.

“This game is a game of opinions and Mr Zidane doesn't think that.

“That is his opinion, he is entitled to it, I won't criticise him.”
