It is unlikely that Gareth Bale will return to England to play for Manchester United or any other Premier League side, according to Ryan Giggs.

Bale joined Real Madrid from Tottenham in summer 2013 for a then-world record £86million.

The Welshman has won two Champions League trophies, a Copa del Rey, a UEFA Super Cup and a Club World Cup in four years in the Spanish capital, and Manchester United legend Giggs does not believe even his former side would be able to tempt him into a move.

“He looks happy at Real Madrid. I don’t think he’s going anywhere at the moment,” Giggs told BBC Wales Sport.

“From a fan’s point of view, it would be great to see him back in the Premier League.

“The United fans would love to see him at Old Trafford. You talk about the big clubs and United is up there.

“While he’s happy there [Madrid], I can’t see him leaving.”
