Gareth Bale will not be leaving Real Madrid on loan this summer, according to his agent, Jonathan Barnett.
“There will be no makeshift deals to get him out of the club.
“Gareth is one of the best players on the planet. I can guarantee you he will not be going on loan to any club.
“Gareth is a Real Madrid player and for now he’s staying as a Real Madrid player.
“If something comes along that suits us, then things could change and he could be gone in a day or a week. Or he could still be a Real player in three years when his contract ends,” Barnett told Sky Sports News.
Following a public fallout with Zinedine Zidane, the Real Madrid boss appeared to confirm Bale’s imminent exit at the weekend, saying that talks were progressing with other clubs.
Bale was excluded from the pre-season defeat by Bayern Munich on Saturday, but Zidane claims he will feature in the game against Arsenal on Tuesday night.
