Real Madrid News: Gareth Bale’s agent slams Zinedine Zidane for his comments against his client, who is set to leave Real Madrid this summer.
Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is set to offload Gareth Bale from the club, as he doesn’t view him in his plans ahead of the next season with Real Madrid is amidst a transition with new signings.
In further advancements, Zidane has confirmed that Los Blancos are preparing for his exit from the Spanish club. However, the statements made by the French manager did not go well with Bale’s agent.
The agent of Gareth Bale, whether a deal is close for Bale to leave Real Madrid, he says: “We are working on it.” Bale’s agent Jonathan Barnett further slammed Zidane: “Zidane is a disgrace, he shows no respect for a player that has done so much for Real Madrid.”
The response came after Zidane made a shocking statement on his plans with Bale, over where he out-rightly discarded the Welsh International’s importance in his new plans.
“Bale did not play tonight because the club is working on his exit,” the French manager replied. “I hope it is imminent, if it happens tomorrow it would be better.”
“I hope it is imminent, if it happens tomorrow it would be better. “The situation will change, I do not know if in 24 or 48 hours, but it will, and it’s a good thing for everyone.”
Hence, this comment by Los Merengues’ manager did not go well, as the 30-year-old superstar has been a good servant to the club for a prolonged period of time.
Several reports earlier also showed that Bale and Zidane had a rift in their relations, after the player was kept on the bench on the final game-day of La Liga.
At the moment, Bale is speculated to make a return to his previous club, Tottenham Hotspurs on a loan move with an option to make a permanent buy.

I find Real Madrid fans’ and Zidane’s attitude towards Bale an absolute disgrace. He has performed so well over there and handed them moments in their history they’ll never forget. The whole situation is absolutely bizarre.
