Zinedine Zidane makes a decision on the Real Madrid future of Gareth Bale
Bale joined Tottenham on a season-long loan from Real Madrid last summer after having fallen out of favour with Zidane. Having endured a difficult start to life in his second stint at the club, the 31-year-old has enjoyed a recent upturn of fortunes, finally starting to show his quality.
Indeed, in his last five appearances in all competitions, Bale has been involved in seven goals, scoring four and setting up three. But, despite his improved form, Real Madrid boss Zidane has decided that he does not want Bale back at his disposal at the club next season.
The report goes on to claim that following Bale’s loan exit last summer, Zidane had informed Real Madrid president Florentino Perez that he would not welcome the Welshman back into the squad, even if the forward scored 30 goals during his temporary stint in England.
Tottenham are believed to have the option of extending Bale’s stay at the club for another year on loan. Furthermore, recent reports have also claimed that Real Madrid have offered his services to the Lilywhites on a permanent basis once his current loan stint runs out.
