Zinedine Zidane has stressed vehemently that he wants Gareth Bale out of Real Madrid, forcing a reaction from Bale’s agent.
Bale’s agent has branded Zidane a disgrace after the French manager’s comments about the Welsh International’s impending exit from the club.
Bale has been touted to leave the Santiago Bernabeu anytime soon and Zidane confirmed that the forward was close to leaving the club, a reason why he was left out of the squad that locked horns with Bayern Munich at the International Champions Cup.
“Bale did not play because he is very close to leaving,” said the Real Madrid boss.
“We hope he leaves soon, it would be best for everyone. We are working on his transfer to a new team.”
Gareth Bale’s agent, Jonathan Barnett has made his thoughts known about the Real Madrid boss stressing that the French gaffer was a disgrace for speaking about a player who has done so much about the Spanish giants.
“Zidane is a disgrace to speak like that about someone who has done so much for Real,” Barnett told ESPN FC.
“If and when Gareth goes it will be because it is in the best interest of Gareth and nothing to do with Zidane pushing.”
Barnett went on to say that the Welsh man was one of the best players in the world and that his future lies at a big club.
“Gareth is still one of the best players in the world, one of the top five players in terms of market value, and his future lies at a big club.”
Several individuals have responded to Zidane’s desire to push Bale out of the club in spite of his contributions to Madrid’s unprecedented consecutive Champions League victories.
He scored crucial goals in two of their Champions Lesgue finals as Real Madrid went on to win four out of five European crowns between the years 2014 and 2018.
