Gareth Bale planning to stay with Real Madrid

Gareth Bale plans to sit out next season at Real Madrid.

The Sun says Bale is set to remain at Real Madrid this summer in a £60million stand-off as he remains livid that he didn't secure a move away last year.

Bale was on the verge of joining Chinese side Jiangsu Suning but the movel, which would have seen him earn £1million-per-week, collapsed over Real's demands.

He is determined to see out the final two years of his deal at Real unless he can secure a move that suits him and has his contract paid up.

Bale's wages total up to £30million a year when bonuses are taken into consideration.

The 31-year-old didn't travel to England for Real's Champions League defeat against Manchester City after informing Zinedine Zidane that he didn't want to be involved.
