Gareth Bale not going anywhere, says agent

The Welsh attacker will stay in the Spanish capital.

Gareth Bale faced heavy criticism after his performance against Juventus. While he wasn't the worst player on Real Madrid's roster -- that accolade belongs to Marcelo and possibly Ramos -- he was nearly invisible throughout the 90 minutes played in Turin.

Football legend Roy Keane stated in an interview after the match that Real Madrid "played with 10 men" and that "Bale gave Real nothing." Now, Gareth Bale's agent Jonathan Barnett has supported his player in the BBC.

Why should we take any notice of irrelevant comments from people who don't know what they are talking about and people who failed in management? Gareth only listens to relevant comments. He is at the biggest club in the world. He is one of the best players in the world. He is fine.

There will surely be plenty of rumors about Bale's future in the upcoming weeks, depending on Real Madrid's success this season. If Los Blancos fail in the race for La Liga and the Champions League, expect some more news about Bale's future.
