What Gareth Bale told Real Madrid team-mates in dressing room transfer bombshell

Zidane Targets Salah

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has dropped the biggest hint yet that Gareth Bale does not feature in his plans going forward, suggesting to the press after his team's woeful 2-0 defeat to Real Betis that the Welshman is the past and not the present. I'm the coach and I will always do what I want to do.

"I am not going to talk about what [Zidane] told me", he said.

Club captain Sergio Ramos remains unavailable for Real Madrid, as does right-back Alvaro Odriozola.

Zidane's surprise departure was seen as a reprieve for Bale who remained in Madrid, but the relationship between him and the club's supporters began to wane.

Zidane wants to see more from his team in their closing La Liga game against Real Betis this Sunday even if Los Blancos can not avoid finishing third after a disappointing campaign started under Santiago Solari.

The best thing for Real Madrid about this season is that it is finally over.

Real Madrid ended a hard campaign with another embarrassing defeat as they lost 2-0 against Real Betis at the Santiago Bernabeu in Sunday's LaLiga clash.

According to Spanish station Radio Estadio, he said: "I've got three years left on my contract".

"We started the season badly and we've finished it badly", said Madrid defender Marcelo.

"It is true, I did not [give Bale a chance to say goodbye]", Zidane said, as per ESPN.

The 26-year-old came sixth in the poll, below the likes of Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar and Lyon's young midfielder Tanguy Ndombele. Injuries and fitness problems have hampered him season by season and Sunday's game could very well prove to be his final appearance for Los Blancos.

As the players saluted the fans at the end, they were greeted by a chorus of whistles.

"We will not forget the past but we have to live for day the day to day".

Bale's stratospheric wages of £13m-per-year represent a huge millstone around the club's neck.

Madrid are expected to try and sign an alternative attacker if they fail in their attempts to lure Salah to Spain, with Gareth Bale set to leave after spending six years with the club.
