Wales boss, Ryan Giggs believes Gareth Bale will benefit a lot at United, but does not see him leaving Madrid.
Bale has had a number of injuries this season, linking him with an exit from Santiago Bernabeu this window.
Giggs, who lined up for United, is looking to help the Wales international at national level, but does not see him leaving Madrid.
“Bale is a great player, one of the best, and for us, as has been demonstrated in recent months, he is fundamental,” he told Marca.
“It’s clear that the team comes first, but in that team we need the best players and Bale is the best.
“Gareth is a player who unbalances opponents. When he has been able to demonstrate his quality at Real Madrid, he has shown that his style of football is fundamental to winning games.
“He’s happy at Real Madrid, he wants to stay, there’s no doubt. He knows that the coach and the club respect him, and he wants to show the fans what he is capable of.
“I don’t know [if United want to sign him], but Bale has no intention of leaving and Real Madrid won’t sell the player. It’s clear that United would’ve been very good for him, but I don’t think that’s an option at the moment, he’s not going to leave Real Madrid.”
