Gareth Bale's agent insists that his client is unconcerned by Real Madrid's anger over him posing in front of a controversial flag after reaching Euro 2020 with Wales.

Gareth Bale's agent Jonathan Barnett has insisted that his client is unconcerned by Real Madrid's anger towards him for posing in front of a controversial flag after reaching Euro 2020 with Wales.

The Welshman was pictured posing and laughing in front of a flag which read "Wales. Golf. Madrid. In that order" after Wales had beaten Hungary to reach consecutive European Championships for the first time in the nation's history.

Reports have claimed that this picture, which quickly went viral, has angered those within the Madrid hierarchy, who described the flag as a "bad joke".

However, ESPN sources have been told by Barnett that Bale harboured no concerns over what reception he will get when the winger features for Madrid against Real Sociedad this weekend.

Bale recently admitted that he found more joy in playing for Wales compared to working under Zinedine Zidane.

Despite the incident, sources at the Bernabeu have insisted that Bale was not up for sale over the January transfer window.
