    Gareth Bale’s relationship with Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid is as its lowest ebb and looks beyond repair, according to reports.

    ESPN claim ‘multiple sources familiar with the situation’ have informed them that Bale and Zidane’s has almost totally broken down.

    French boss Zidane has publicly stated the situation is “completely normal” but in reality he has been uncomfortable discussing the matter ever since his infamous “if Bale leaves tomorrow, that would be best,” admission last summer.

    The player’s agent Jonathan Barnett continually plays down talk of unrest and said in February: “I think Mr Zidane and Mr Bale have a very good relationship now. It’s fine.”

    While in April he reiterated that Bale was content in the Spanish capital.

    “Gareth believes there is still a future for him at Real Madrid, he has a wife and three children who are very happy and very contented, and he has a lovely lifestyle,” Barnett said.

    Now though, as per the source, there is “something personal” between the pair with the ill feeling lingering on from the 2018 Champions League final victory against Liverpool.



    Zidane left Bale out of his line-up, but the Welshman was brought on and scored a match-winning double off the bench.

    Zidane left the club days later, only to return in March 2019, but the pair’s relationship is now worse than ever.


    Bale upset

    Bale is apparently upset at frequently being named a substitute and the Real hierarchy have not been impressed with how the forward has reacted to those decisions.

    He has recently come off the bench against Eibar, been an unused sub against Valencia and Real Sociedad, and started against Mallorca on Wednesday.

    What’s more the former Spurs star’s relationship with president Florentino Perez “is not what it was”.

    Just what the future holds for Bale is unclear.

    Bale was strongly linked with a move back to Spurs earlier in the year, having joined Madrid from the North London outfit in the summer of 2013 for £85million.

    Man Utd have also been mentioned as suitors in the past with former United boss David Moyes admitting he was trying to sign Bale while he was in charge at Old Trafford.
