Real Madrid news: Zinedine Zidane ‘making it clear’ to Gareth Bale that he has no future at club
Zinedine Zidane is reportedly ‘making it clear’ to Gareth Bale that his time at Real Madrid is coming to an end.
Bale came off the bench to play just ten minutes as Los Blancos were frustrated at Leganes on Monday evening.
The Welshman’s future with the Bernebeu outfit has been subject to intense speculation following the return of Zidane as manager, with the Frenchman often preferring to use Isco in his line-up throughout his first stint in charge.,
He has also failed to win over the Bernebeu faithful in his six year stint with the club, despite playing an instrumental role in four Champions League triumphs and their LaLiga title.
Bale has been jeered in most games this season, while former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon launched a scathing attack on him last month, saying he has ‘not lived up to expectations’ since his £85million arrival from Tottenham.

A move away from Real this summer for the 29-year-old appears inevitable, and, according to Marca, Zidane is being brutally honest to the forward about his future.
Zidane hasn’t given much away about whether he intends to keep Bale in public, however.
Speaking ahead of the Leganes clash, he said: “There are seven games left. Let’s see how we play. There will be changes but Gareth is part of the team.”
Bale has netted 78 goals in 152 LaLiga appearances in the Spanish capital.
This season, he has eight goals and two assists in 26 matches.
