Gareth Bale's agent Jonathan Barnett has said the forward is "very happy" at Real Madrid and is not looking for a move away from the club, amid interest from Manchester United.

The 26-year-old made the switch to the Santiago Bernabeu from Tottenham Hotspur in 2013 for a world record fee of £85.3m ($133m), according to BBC Sport. In his debut season, he went on to win the Copa del Rey and the Champions League, scoring in both finals.

United have been heavily linked with a move to sign the Wales international. The Sunday Express reported the Premier League giants will make a €122m (£86m, $133.8m) bid for the player this summer.

However, Barnett has quashed speculations surrounding Bale's future and said the Wales international wants to repay the faith put in him by Real president Florentino Perez.

Speaking exclusively to IBTimes UK, Barnett said, "There is no situation. Why should he leave? There are rumours of men on the moon. That's a saying.

"He is a star at Real. Why would he consider leaving them. He is very happy to be at the biggest club in the world. [Winning Copa del Rey and Champions League] that's just the start and he will be the best player in the world. He wants to do that at Real.

"Gareth is a great team player and wants to repay the faith that president of Real Madrid has shown. He has a great deal of respect for Perez. He likes Gareth and he broke the world record for him and he very much admirers the president," he added.

At the end of the 2014/15 campaign Real showed the exit door to Carlo Ancelotti and replaced him with Rafael Benitez. The former Liverpool manager said that Bale is a huge player for the 10-time European champions and he is happy at the club.

Benitez has moved Bale from the right side into the middle and played him as a second striker in Real's pre-season fixtures.

Barnett added that his client and the manager have already held conversations in deciding where he will play next season and added that they will find a position, which is best for the club and the player.

"I think he had a conversation with Benitez and between them they will find a position that suits them both," the representative explained. "One that suits the team and the one suits Gareth. I think that's the most important thing. It has to suit both and that's something I will not be involved in."

When asked if Bale has set his sights on winning Ballon d'Or, Barnett said, "Of course he wants to win everything at the club. But it has to be with in conjunction with Real. For him the most important thing has always been Real Madrid wins everything."
