The Portuguese superstar was reportedly upset with Bale's agent, after comments he made about his client not wanting to be an underwear model.

However, the Los Blancos manager was quick to rubbish reports that there was a rift between two of his superstars.

"The atmosphere within the squad is very good and the players get on well," Benitez said.

"There are no problems, although I can't control what agents say. We have to pull together and the players know that. We're focused on our targets".

Benitez maintained that there were no problems in the dressing room, adding that the players get along well.

"What I said in an interview earlier this week is a fact: there is a really good atmosphere within the squad. 

"The players are competitive and get on well together; obviously some are closer than others for certain reasons, like Modric and Kovacic or Benzema and Varane, but there are no problems here. I can't control what agents say, though".

The former Liverpool manager also feels that there are people trying to disturb Los Blancos with all the stories in the media.

"There are people for whom it's not in their interest for things to go well for Real Madrid and who want to unsettle us. Stories about controversies get made up, spread and can confuse even the most dyed-in-the-wool Real Madrid fans. People believe things that aren't true," he added.
