Gareth Bale Is Not In My Plans, Insists Real Madrid Coach Carlo Ancelotti: Daily Soccer Report

gareth bale4 Gareth Bale Is Not In My Plans, Insists Real Madrid Coach Carlo Ancelotti: Daily Soccer Report

Real Madrid’s hunt to sign Gareth Bale from Tottenham Hotspur has gone cold, after there have been some reports in The Daily Telegraph that Carlo Ancelotti is less interested in signing the player, and may have moved on to focus on other acquisitions instead.

The article in question (linked below) doesn’t include any matter-of-fact evidence, but the hints clearly point that Real Madrid may be less interested. During a recent press conference, when asked about Bale, Ancelotti responded that the reporters should talk about Alvaro Morata and Jese Rodriguez instead of focusing on Bale.

The Telegraph reports that Manchester United may now be the destination for Bale, but it’s all speculation based on tiny scraps of circumstances lobbed together.

Will Tottenham Hotspur be able to hold on to Gareth Bale in this transfer window, or will be end up at Manchester United? Give us your prediction in the comments section below.
