Manchester United suffer setback in Gareth Bale race


Real Madrid midfielder Gareth Bale will stay at Real Madrid according to reports from Spain.

The 25-year-old was expected to leave the Spanish Liga to make a return to the English Premier League but new coach Rafa Benitez is determined to keep the Welshman.

Benitez will leave Napoli at the end of the season and is expected to take over from Carlo Ancelotti.

"I want to thank the chairman, club and fans because after two years my experience here in Napoli is coming to an end," Benitez said on Thursday.

"On Sunday, we have a very important match and I want to finish my two years with a victory.

"Napoli and [president] Aurelio [De Laurentiis] have made every effort and we were close to renewal."
