Manchester United Boss Jose Mourinho has ended his pursuit after the Wales International Gareth Bale after the Super Cup defeat to Real Madrid in Macedonia.

Real Madrid Coach Zinedine Zidane said nothing over over the Mourinho's Press conference talks but included him in the line up, which the forward ended up giving with a wonderful performance.

"Clearly the club wants him, the manager wants him and he wants the club, so for me it's game over - even before it started," Mourinho told BT Sport.

"It's game over clearly because everybody knows he is going to stay."


The Wale International has been a under speculation since the press conference in preparation for the match. He had a superb game and was substituted towards the end of a match in which Casemiro and Romelu Lukaku joined Isco in netting.

"I am just concentrating on my football. I am not listening to anything, I don't read anything, obviously I get told bits and bobs," he said.

"I am enjoying my football here, I am playing as much as I can and I'm winning trophies so that's all I am concentrating on.

"I haven't had any conversations (with Madrid), I am just concentrating on my football, I'm trying to get my fitness up as much as I can after pretty much not playing regularly for eight or nine months.

"It is great to keep adding to the (medal) collection, it was a very difficult game but we got the job done and we've got another trophy and we move on."

Manchester United should have gone leveled but for Lukaku's abominable miss which he later made up for I'm pulling back one goal. But the manager preferred to deal with the positives of the game.

"I think we did well," said Mourinho. "We lost 2-1 which, I think, shows the result was really short, and one of the goals was offside so with a good VAR [video assistant referee] it would be 1-1 and extra-time. I think they could score more goals than they did, we could score more goals than we did.

"We gave them a fight, we gave them a good fight and my boys only have reasons to leave - okay, disappointed because to lose is disappointing - but to leave optimistic and proud. Let's go for Sunday."

"We deserve the rest tomorrow and on Thursday we will start, we go for it with everything," said Mourinho. "I'm so happy to be the manager of these guys, I told them a few days ago that during my long career I never had a group that I liked so much, like I like them.

"I'm really happy to be with them and I'm going to fight with them all the way, so let's go on Sunday. Old Trafford is waiting for us and I think Old Trafford has a reason to be behind us."
