Gareth Bale will only make a permanent move away from Real Madrid if he is to leave the Spanish giant according to his agent, Jonathan Bennett.
The Welshman is surplus to requirement at Madrid as his relationship with coach Zinedine Zidane is now almost irreparable.
Zidane suggested a few days ago that the 30-year-old was close to a move away from the club after withdrawing himself from contention for pre-season selection.
Bale's agent labeled Zidane's comment a disgrace as the search for a new club for the former Tottenham man continues.
Recent reports have seemed to have suggested Bale could be heading to China on loan, with a few other European clubs reportedly interested in a similar deal.
But Jonathan Barnett is, however, adamant that no loan switch will be approved.
“There will be no makeshift deals to get him out of the club," he told Sky Sports.
“Gareth is one of the best players on the planet. I can guarantee you he will not be going on loan to any club.”
“Gareth is a Real Madrid player and for now he’s staying as a Real Madrid player.
“If something comes along that suits us, then things could change and he could be gone in a day or a week. Or he could still be a Real player in three years when his contract ends.”
Bale gas has been training with his teammates despite the uncertainty surrounding his future and it remains to be seen if he would feature in Real Madrid's game against Arsenal
