's Real Madrid
future is up in the air again after the return of Zindine Zidane to the managerial hotseat.
But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would not be drawn on whether Manchester United
will reignite their long-held interest in the Welshman.
Bale failed to see eye-to-eye with Zidane during his first spell in charge at the Bernabeu and has had a disappointing season.
He appears to be set for the exit door this summer, though his agent refuted those claims this week
Solskjaer, who is expected to take up the reins permanently at Old Trafford, refused to comment on Bale's situation,
'I can't really comment on Gareth Bale or specific players,' he said in a press-conference.
'Because they're property of other clubs but we should look for quality players, definitely, and players who could improve us as a team.
'There's so many factors you need to think about when you sign players.
'It's easy when you're in the media or when you're a supporter, you can think short-term. We've got to think about the longevity as well, who's going to fit in personality-wise.
'So there's so many things that we need to think about.'
