Gareth Bale: "I'm concentrating on my football."

Gareth Bale has quashed rumours linking him with a move away from the Bernabeu, saying he is happy with life at Real Madrid.

Jose Mourinho said he could sign Bale - if he was surplus to requirements at Madrid - ahead of United's 2-1 UEFA Super Cup defeat to Real in Skopje on Tuesday night.

But the Manchester United manager latter said it was "game over" in his pursuit of Bale, after the 28-year-old started for Real at the Philip II Arena.

And following the Super Cup match, Bale was asked if he was flattered by Mourinho's interest in him, and he replied as the Mirror quoted: "What do you want me to say? I'm concentrating on my football, I'm concentrating on getting my fitness up, I'm happy I'm playing football, I'm winning trophies, so yeah, I don't want to move, there's not really much more I can say.

"It [the speculation] doesn't bother me at all. I really don't read it, obviously there's been a lot of it over the last few days that I get told about. It doesn't bother me, I've had it about 10, 11 years now, so it's nothing new.

"The club hasn't said anything, we've spoke, they're happy with everything and, yeah, for me, I just want to concentrate now on getting fit, on getting ready for the new season and playing as well as I can.

"There's been no need for anything, everything has gone as normal, like it has every year, there's been the normal speculation like there is every year.

"I think, obviously, it's a little bit more hyped up because we were playing United so, yeah, it's one of those things."
