Gareth Bale’s agent insists plan to see out Real Madrid two-years contract. “Zidane doesn’t want to coach Bale, but he has two years left on his contract.”
Real Madrid expect a difficult summer transfer window in terms of incomings, yet outgoings could be an even greater challenge for the Spanish champions.
Jonathan Barnett confirms that Gareth Bale has no interest in leaving the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.
As Los Blancos celebrated their latest domestic triumph, Bale was a sideline figure, barely able to raise his arms in recognition of the achievement of the team.
That is, largely, because he hasn’t necessarily been part of this achievement with Zidane totally giving up on the former Tottenham forward.
Then an injury arrived, and the infamous international break which caused great consternation amongst Los Blancos fans and medical staff alike.
He has fallen out of favour since then and we’ve been left with a rather childish exchange of gestures from the bench when Bale hasn’t been used as a substitute.
“Zidane doesn’t want to coach Bale. But he has two years left on his contract, is very happy living in Madrid. He isn’t going anywhere,” Barnett explained in an interview with the BBC.
“Bale is as good as his teammates, but this is a decision taken by Zidane. There is no hatred from Bale and he isn’t trying to survive Zidane. He is simply training well every day, but Zidane, who has been successful, doesn’t want to use him.”
