Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has reportedly called Real Madrid to tell them he won't be making an approach for Gareth Bale.

The Red Devils are being linked with the Welshman again, perhaps for next summer, with the former Spurs flier suffering another injury-prone season.

But Mourinho is wary of Bale's growing fitness problems and has opted not to make a move, according to Spanish outlet Diario Gol.

The Portuguese has apparently told Los Blancos president Florentino Perez, who he worked under at the Bernabeu, that he's not interested.
