Gareth Bale speaks out amid Manchester United transfer speculation


Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale says he is looking forward to making a big impact for the Spanish giants this season.

The Welshman scored against his former club Tottenham Hotspur as Real Madrid reached the final of the Audi Cup in Germany.

He is a target for Manchester United according to reports in England although the Red Devils' chances of signing the player are extremely low.

"I am optimistic about the season. I am confident anyway," Bale is quoted as saying by Mirror.

"It's great to have the support of the manager and the president and hopefully I can repay them now with some goals and trophies.

"I enjoy playing through the middle. It's my best position. When I played for Tottenham I played my best football there.

"It definitely gives me more freedom. I can go out left, go out right and go through the centre. It's where I want to play.

"When I play for Wales I play there and play my best football and hopefully I can do that this season."
