Gareth Bale trains with Wales but won't face Ireland
GARETH Bale took part in a light one-on-one training session in Newport this afternoon after reporting for duty with Chris Coleman's Wales squad but he will not play against Ireland on Wednesday.
The Tottenham winger's future remains in the balance as Real Madrid attempt to complete a world-record deal to take the 24-year-old to the Bernabeu, while reports this morning suggest Manchester United are set to enter the race.
Bale has not played for Spurs in nearly a month and is currently nursing a foot injury.
His club manager Andre-Villas Boas said the Welshman is unlikely to be fit for their Premier League opener against Crystal Palace, and he will not take any part in Wednesday's friendly meeting with the Republic of Ireland.
It is understood Bale is concerned about risking his fitness against the Republic with a potential big-money move on the horizon.
