GARETH BALE is certain to stay at Real Madrid after being assured they are unlikely to buy any Galacticos.
The Wales star, 30, who still has two years left on his current deal, has been determined to remain in the Spanish capital despite his strained relationship with boss Zinedine Zidane.

And the former Tottenham star has now been told by Real that they will be happy for him to stay.
The lack of funds at the Bernabeu because of the coronavirus, compounded by a £500m stadium redevelopment, means major signings are on hold.

He was set for a move to China but that collapsed and now looks likely to see out his contract.

Last summer, Jiangsu Suning were on the verge of handing him a three-year deal worth more than £1m a week but Real’s board then blocked the move at the last minute.

After 27 games of the season, Real currently trail Barcelona by one point.
