Gareth Bale’s agent has ruled out any loan deal for the Real Madrid forward as the Spanish side seek to offload the Wales international.
The 30-year-old is out of favour with Real Madrid and manager Zinedine Zidane has said the club are “working on his departure”.
“There will be no makeshift deals to get him out of the club,” agent Jonathan Barnett said on Tuesday.
“Gareth is one of the best players on the planet. I can guarantee you he will not be going on loan to any club.”
Bale has won four UEFA Champions League titles since joining Real Madrid from Tottenham Hotspur in 2013 for a then world record transfer fee of 100 million euros (£89.7 million).
But he has struggled to hold down a starting spot last season.
The interest of European clubs in a permanent deal for Bale is likely to depend on his willingness to accept a salary cut.
Chinese Super League clubs Jiangsu Suning and Beijing Guoan have been linked to the player in media reports.
“Gareth is a Real Madrid player and for now he’s staying as a Real Madrid player,” said Barnett.
“If something comes along that suits us, then things can change and he could be gone in a day or a week. Or he could still be a Real Madrid player in three years when his contract ends.” (NAN)
