Not for the first time the 28-year-old is subject to intense speculation, with reports in Spain suggesting the La Liga giants could part company with the attacker if Monaco's Kylian Mbappe arrives.
Talk stepped up a notch when Mourinho pledged to "fight" for Bale if he was not involved in the UEFA Super Cup - only for his impressive display in Tuesday's 2-1 win to lead the United boss to concede it was "game over" on that front.
After the match in Skopje, the Wales international was peppered with questions about his future, yet appeared unflustered and reiterated his desire to stay at the Bernabeu.
"What do you want me to say? I'm concentrating on my football, I'm concentrating on getting my fitness up," Bale said. "I'm happy I'm playing football, I'm winning trophies, so yeah, I don't want to move, there's not really much more I can say.
"The club hasn't said anything, we've spoke, they're happy with everything and, yeah, for me, I just want to concentrate now on getting fit, on getting ready for the new season and playing as well as I can."
Rumours are rife that Bale has agreed to join United 12 months from now, and going by his latest comments, that is more likely as he appears to be going nowhere for now.
