Mourinho says it is ‘game over’ for Bale

Manchester United lost the UEFA Super Cup to Real Madrid as Gareth Bale started for Los Blancos.

The Red Devils boss José Mourinho admits there is no way they can lure the Welshman to Old Trafford following the game on Tuesday. Bale was speculated to miss out the game due to Asensio, but that was not the case.

Speaking to BT Sport after the game, Mourinho said:

“Clearly the club wants him, the manager wants him and he wants the club, so for me it’s game over,”

“Even before it started, but it’s game over clearly because everybody knows he is going to stay.”

Meanwhile Madrid president Florentino Perez also confirmed on Tuesday that he had no intention of selling Bale.
