Wales and Real Madrid star Gareth Bale has come in for some heavy criticism over the past few months but insists he is not bothered by what people think.
Since the criticism has set in, Bale has been heavily linked with a move back to the Premier League with the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea reportedly interested in signing the former Spurs star for his buy-out clause of £75 million.Embed from Getty Images
Bale gave nothing away on the talk of a move away from the Spanish giants and insisted he is fully focused on just playing football.
“There are ups and downs in football. You have to take it with a pinch of salt and all you can do is respond with performances on the pitch, like that.”
