Real Madrid manager, coach Zinedine Zidane has given Manchester United and every other clubs that may be interested in Wales international, Gareth Bale a boost.
Zidane in a report via The Guardian said Bale was intentionally left out of the match against Bayern Munich in the International Champion Cup in Houston on Saturday night because the Los Blancos are already preparing for life after his departure which could take place in days.
The Real Madrid manager hinted that the Spanish club are already in talks with an unidentified club on Bale’s transfer as he added that he wants the process to be done on time.
Zidane was quoted as saying after the 3-1 defeat against Bayern Munich.
“Bale’s not in the squad because the club is working on his exit. We will see what happens in the coming days.
“I’m not going to talk about that. We’ll see if it’s tomorrow, [so much the] better. It is not personal at all: there comes a time when things are done because they have to be done.
I have to take the decision and we have to change. [The situation] will change. I don’t know if in 24 or 48 hours, but it will change. And that’s good for everyone.”
Bale, who move to Santiago Bernabeu from Tottenham at £85 million in 2013 has helped the Los Blancos lift four UCL titles, however, his career at Spain has been plagued by incessant injuries.
The Wales international has been linked with a move to Man Utd, Bayern Munich, Tottenham, to mention but a few.
The arrival of Eden Hazard has pushed the Welshman further down the pecking order of attackers at the club. His contract still runs until the summer of 2022 but it is left to be seen whether he would be contented with playing a fringe role under Zidane.
