Chris Coleman believes Gareth Bale will stay at Real Madrid, and that Wales will benefit from the forward's decision.
Bale, 26, has been linked with a move to Manchester United after a frustrating second season at the Bernabeu during which he was booed by Real fans as they failed to land any silverware.
However, Wales boss Coleman is convinced Bale's future lies with Los Blancos, and that the €100 million forward's continued presence in Spain means he will be more effective for Wales.
