Manchester United Haven't Made Offer For Me, Says Real Madrid Star

The Wales worldwide scored nine goals in 27 appearances in all competitions last season.

"Last year it bothered me, because you always try to help the team and give your best".

Bale hopes that will be the case, but insists he has no inside knowledge as to what his team-mate - who last November signed a contract tying him to Real until 2021 - will end up doing. "The ankle is strong and I am ready".

Cristiano Ronaldo will not feature for Real Madrid against his old club Manchester United in the UEFA Super Cup on August 8.

"No, it was all very hard with my injury, but for no other reason", Bale said.

"I haven't heard Cristiano saying he wants to leave", he said at the Star Sixes tournament.

"Logically I am a British player, so I am always linked with a return home". It happened with David Beckham and other English players who came here. It is nothing new.

"It was bad luck, you can not avoid these injuries in football, when you knock your ankle. You can not avoid these injuries in football when someone kicks your ankle", he said.

Former Spain global, Fernando Morientes, has said that Cristiano Ronaldo is "so happy" at Real Madrid and the La Liga champions are delighted with their star forward.

"But in top football, in Europe, I don't think Ronaldo is going to change clubs".

When asked by Marca whether he has thought about leaving Madrid, Bale replied: "No, everything has been complicated due to my injury, but for nothing else".

I haven't read anything. "Look, I only realised yesterday that [Romelu] Lukaku had joined Manchester United, so the truth is I don't know".

With retirement very much now on the horizon, the former Sporting Lisbon man will, however, need to prioritise games from here on out, and despite this match being against a club he holds close to his heart the right decision is to watch on rather than take part.
