Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale has hinted at the reason why he might have rejected Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United in the recent window.
Bale was heavily linked with a switch to United over the past couple of months, and he has now hinted that it was a desire to carry on winning trophies with Real that inspired him to stay in Madrid.
« Well, there’s an argument for that, » the Welshman told the Daily Mail when asked if a move to United was on the cards in the latest window.
« But I think the main thing, when you look back on your career, is that you look at your trophies.
« In the end, that’s probably the most important thing. »
Bale joined Los Blancos from Tottenham Hotspur in 2013, and has since scored 68 goals and assisted 53 strikes in 155 matches.
The United target has won 10 trophies at Real, including three UEFA Champions League titles.
