'It's a club like no other, where the white handkerchiefs come out': Ryan Giggs slams treatment of Gareth Bale by Real Madrid supporters as he praises his captain's professionalism

'It's a club like no other, where the white handkerchiefs come out': Ryan Giggs slams treatment of Gareth Bale by Real Madrid supporters as he praises his captain's professionalism Ryan Giggs has launched a staunch defence of Gareth Bale's love for football amid claims the Wales forward would be content to see out his three-year Real Madrid contract on the bench. Reports in Spain have suggested Bale is prepared to stay at the Bernabeu for the duration of his lucrative deal even if that means a lack of game-time under Zinedine Zidane. A year ago Bale starred in the Champions League final against Liverpool, scoring a wondrous overhead kick, but he has not played since April and was left on the bench for the final game of the season despite Real losing to Betis.

We see ourselves as Manchester United playing at home in the Champions League." So said Giggs before the Champions League quarter-final opening leg against Bayern. In this moment a season of deferential football that has left the club embarrassingly off the pace was swept away and the real

Daniel James needs to be himself and enjoy the challenge if he is to become a success at Manchester United, according to Wales manager Ryan Giggs.

United confirmed on Friday an agreement in principle to sign the 21-year-old had been reached with Swansea City, with James having undergone a medical ahead of a reported £18million transfer.

James has just one season of senior football under his belt, but he has caught the eye with his displays out wide for Swansea and Wales.

And United legend Giggs believes the transfer is good business for all three parties involved, with the pacy winger expected to challenge for regular first-team football next season.

United make James Maddison enquiry

United make James Maddison enquiry Manchester United have reportedly made an early enquiry over a deal to sign James Maddison from Leicester. The Independent reports that United have now made the Englishman their primary summer target. A deal for the former Norwich playmaker is estimated to cost around £60 million and early talks are said to have taken place. Leicester have had to contend with reported interest from Tottenham throughout the season but it now appears that United are leading the chase to sign him this summer. The report also claims that Manchester City and Liverpool are watching his development closely.

Ryan Giggs has said he is enjoying his football 'as much as ever' and would like to sign another contract extension. "He tells me when I am not going to play and gives me a little bit more notice now. It is a great relationship and one that has been a big part of why I am still playing ."

Ryan Giggs warned Manchester United against making a hasty decision as the club looks to secure Louis van Gaal this week.

"I know the United fans will get behind him and enjoy watching him. It's fantastic for everyone I think - for Dan, for Manchester United, and it's a good deal for Swansea as well," he told reporters.

"It's the biggest club in the world so my message to him is enjoy the challenge, don't be anyone else, and you'll be fine."

Giggs has included James, whose father Kevan died suddenly last month, as part of his Wales squad for the upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers against Croatia and Hungary.

"Dan is fine. He's trained well and he's a level-headed lad," Giggs said. "Obviously after the terrible news with his dad we had to be flexible in everything that was on the table.

"He went home on Thursday, but he's in a good place. He's assured me he's ready to play."

Javier Hernandez tells West Ham he wants summer exit.
Javier Hernandez has reportedly told West Ham he is happy to leave the London Stadium this summer if he is not in Manuel Pellegrini’s first team plans, according to Football Insider. The forward only started 14 times last season for the Hammers as he has was preferred to Austrian Marko Arnautovic for the majority of the campaign. Pellegrini reportedly sees the Mexcian as a backup forward to Arnautovic for the upcoming season, which could mean the dynamic forward departs the club this summer, with sides in Spain and America keen on the 31-year-old.
