REAL MADRID MANAGER ZINEDINE ZIDANE HAS REPORTEDLY TOLD GARETH BALE AND TWO OTHER PLAYERS THEY CAN LEAVE THE CLUB THIS SUMMER.
Real Madrid boss Zidane has never seemed to take to Bale, with their rocky relationship lasting years.
The Frenchman snubbed the Wales international for starting berths in the 2017 and 2018 Champions League final but, when he left at the end of last season, Bale was expected to perform.
The player has endured a nightmare campaign at the Bernabeu, however, with things worsening since Zidane’s Real Madrid return back in March.
Manchester United, Tottenham and Chelsea have all been backed to move for the 29-year-old when the transfer window reopens.
And Spanish newspaper Marca claim Zidane has personally told Bale he is free to leave.
The report claims the duo met for a one-on-one chat and it was made clear to the Tottenham star that he was free to leave.
Bale was snubbed for Real Madrid’s victory over Villarreal on Sunday, with Zidane explaining the decision by saying: “I’m the coach, I have to pick the team and that’s all there is to it.
“You can interpret it as you wish.
“I need to pick a squad of players and some are going to miss out.”
