‘Gareth is 100 per cent committed to Real Madrid’: Bale’s agent dismisses transfer rumours after Zinedine Zidane questioned Welshman’s focus
- Agent Jonathan Barnett has insisted Gareth Bale is focused on Real Madrid
- Zinedine Zidane questioned Bale’s focus after 1-0 defeat to Rayo on Sunday
- The Welshman has persistently been linked with moves away from Bernabeu
- But Barnett has responded by saying Bale is ‘100 per cent committed’ to Real
Gareth Bale’s agent says the Wales international remains ‘100 per cent’ committed to Real Madrid.
Bale has been persistently linked with a move away from the Bernabeu this season, having hinted at such a switch after last year’s Champions League final and following reports of a disconnect between the 29-year-old and his team-mates.
Former Tottenham man Bale played the full 90 minutes as Madrid were beaten 1-0 by Rayo Vallecano on Sunday, but head coach Zinedine Zidane later questioned whether he was fully focused.

Barnett insisted Bale is ‘100 per cent committed’ to Real after Zidane questioned his focus
Agent Jonathan Barnett has responded to Zidane’s comments by telling BBC Wales Sport: ‘Gareth is 100 per cent committed to Real Madrid.’
Referring to his past assertion that Bale wanted to spend the rest of his career with Madrid, Barnett added: ‘Nothing has changed.’
Bale’s Madrid contract runs until 2022 and, while a move to Manchester United or a return to Spurs have been mooted, no clear suitors have emerged to sign a man whose £85.3million transfer from White Hart Lane in 2013 was a world record at the time.
