- Gareth Bale is not interested in being used as a bait to sign Liverpool star Mohamed Salah this summer
- The 28-year-old is said to be in contact with Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho over a possible move to Old Trafford
- He will also consider to rejoin his former club Tottenham Hotspur than join the Reds, saying they are not among the top teams in England
Real Madrid superstar has reportedly told Los Blancos chiefs he will not be included in a swap deal to land Liverpool star Mohamed Salah this summer.
The Welshman has been tipped with a move away from the Santiago Bernabeu due to lack of enough playing time since he returned from his calf muscle strain late last year.
Meanwhile, Spanish news outlet, Don Balon claims the 28-year-old is considering a move back to either his former club, Tottenham or Manchester United.
The Galacticos are plotting to sign the Egyptian forward, who has been on fire for the Reds in his first season at Anfield.
He has scored 30 Premier League goals while his goal tally for the season has risen to 40 goals in all competitions this term.
However, Real president Florentino Perez feels the only way to achieve their aim of signing the ex-Chelsea star is to offer Liverpool a player plus cash in the deal.
Bale, according to Daily Star, claims Liverpool are not among the top teams in the Premier League, hence he will not be joining them when this season wraps up next month.
He thinks joining Manchester United or Spurs will give him a better chance of winning titles in the remainder of his career.
With the winger refusing to join Liverpool, Real boss Perez will now need to come up with an alternative offer to try and secure the signing of Salah.
Despite their impressive run in this year’s UEFA Champions League, Los Blancos have struggled in the domestic league all season long with Barcelona closing in on winning the title after a couple of games .
They are 15 points behind the Catalan club on the Spanish League table with just six matches left to play.
However, Zinedine Zidane’s men will battle Bayern Munich in their Champions League semifinal clash later this month.
While the only Premier League team in Europe this season will face AS Roma at the last four stage of the championship.
Real are the most successful team in the competition with 12 titles and they are gunning for their 13th this season.
