London, Feb 13: Real Madrid star ace Gareth Bale's representative has claimed his client is worth the same amount as world's costliest player Neymar and despite continuous transfer speculation, the 28-year-old is loving life at La Liga giants Real Madrid and has no desire to leave.
The 27-year-old faced a frustrating season last season after suffering numerous injuries throughout the campaign and often found himself behind Isco, Vazquez and Asensio in the pecking order under Zidane.
This season the player also has been facing the same issue as he only played 12 matches in the league for Los Blancos. Thus it was rumoured that the club management was not happy with the attacker's consistent injury woes and the Wales player could be offered a chance to seal a move away from the Club to which the Old Trafford side are ready to jump on.
The star attacker who last October signed a new contract until 2022 also added fuel to that fire as earlier when he told that he could leave the Spanish capital one day only to return to the Premier League - his 'home'.
But the player's agent, Jonathan Barnett has now put an end to all of these speculations by claiming that his client loves his current club and hopes to end his career at Bernabeu despite all rumours and negativities.
The Welshman has recently been representing as a regular in the Madrid set up after returning from injury in December and has started 2018 on top form, claiming Real's Player of the Month for January after scoring five goals.
And his representative Barnett believes his client is happy to prolong his stay at Spanish capital and now in the same bracket as Neymar who joined PSG for a whopping £200m deal last summer.
Jonathan Barnett told Tuttosport: “Bale? I think he’s worth as much as Neymar.
“He loves Real Madrid and doesn’t want to leave. Gareth does not need Ronaldo to leave Real Madrid, he is already a top star of the club.
“Bale is such a positive example for children. You will never see him at a fast food restaurant. He goes to bed early and I don’t think he is worse than Neymar.
“He can also battle it out for the Ballon d’Or in the future.”
Bale has featured in 20 matches so far this season, scoring nine and assisting five and has been magnificently impressive whenever he put on the white jersey.
