Gareth Bale to Manchester United: Real Madrid star discusses Old Trafford links

Gareth Bale

Cristiano Ronaldo's former teammate Michel Salgado believes the star striker will not leave Real Madrid for a fellow European heavyweight. Ronaldo is one of them.

Ronaldo will not take part in Real Madrid's pre-season in the U.S., which starts on July 23 against Manchester United, but is expected to join the team in August after his post-confederations cup holidays end.

"I don't see Ronaldo with another shirt, at least in top football", Salgado said at the Star Sixes tournament in London. Look, I only found out yesterday that (Romelu) Lukaku has signed for Manchester United...

"But I know him, he is a professional, he is going to be ready to be the important guy that he is, in the important games".

Well, you'll have to ask him.

Formula E: Sam Bird Wins First Race Ever Held in NY
He will start the race in first with Mahindra's Felix Rosenqvist next to him in second. DS Virgin driver Sam Bird won both the races and had a flawless Formula E weekend.

Bale and Ronaldo have been club-mates since 2013 and were part of the Madrid squad that won the Champions League and LaLiga titles last season, although the Wales international's contribution was once more disrupted by injury - including an ankle problem which nearly robbed him of a place in the Champions League final in his home city of Cardiff.

The Welshman has netted 67 times in 150 appearances and has enjoyed a huge amount of success in terms of silverware in Madrid, with three Champions League titles to his name.

"(The ankle is) fine.

"Obviously during the holidays I haven't done a lot of intense stuff but I'm recovering well", he said. I've worked hard to recover and now I'm able to do pre-season.

He said: 'He will do everything for the team and that is the most important thing. But in top football, in Europe, I don't think Ronaldo is going to change club. "I'm sure we'll also need a bit of luck".
