Exclusive: Man Utd’s pursuit of Bale looks over as Real Madrid star agrees bumper new deal

Bale’s admirers at Old Trafford will have to accept the 27-year-old is staying in Spain after agreeing a six-year deal worth around £350,000 a week.

The eye-watering £91m deal represents an increase on the £300,000 a week the Welshman agreed on moving from Tottenham three years ago.

The son of a school caretaker, Bale snubbed United in favour of Real, who decided to step up their efforts to keep him long-term following his performances at Euro 2016.

Bale has made it clear he is happy living in the Spanish capital and Real will now look to build a side around him as fellow galactico Cristiano Ronaldo approaches the twilight of his career at the age of 31.
