Gareth Bale has no reason to leave Real Madrid – Coleman
The tempo is different in Spain, it’s slower.”
However, Bale appears determined to remain at the Bernabeu despite facing criticism from the media and fans.
“I watched a lot of Madrid’s games and [Cristiano] Ronaldo, [Karim] Benzema and Isco were having bad times, but ‘Balely’ was targeted for sure and they left him out in the cold.
“Manchester United are who they are, but why is he going to want to leave Madrid?” Coleman said on Sky Sports.
Wales manager Chris Coleman has said he believes Gareth Bale will stay at Real Madrid and questioned why he would want to leave for Manchester United.
“With ‘Balely,’ if you are that good offensively you are going to get kicked and beat up a bit. The Premier League is the hardest league physically, so, selfishly, when I get him from La Liga he is better physically probably than when he was at Tottenham. “I know he came in for a lot of criticism and was seen at the president’s boy because of the huge transfer fee and he was targeted.
Chris Coleman said Gareth Bale has been in better shape for Wales since leaving the Premier League.
Bale has scored 39 goals in 92 games for Real, including one in the 2014 Champions League final, and Coleman is happy to see him stay in Spain.
Bale has top-scored for Coleman’s Wales side as they attempt to qualify for Euro 2016 and have gone up to ninth in the world rankings..
“The newspapers gave him a hard time when most of the players were having a tough time, but he is strong enough and come through that and I think he will have a good season with [new manager Rafa] Benitez.”
United tried to sign the winger when Real bought him from Tottenham for a world-record fee of £85 million in 2013, and they have reportedly retained an interest in the 26-year-old.
“Personally I think the Premier League is such a physical demand on the guys,” the former Fulham and Real Sociedad boss said.
Rafael Benitez says he may change Gareth Bale’s position on the pitch, but insists he’s central to the Real Madrid side
