'We are all united' - Zidane brushes off Bale exit talk at Madrid


Gareth Bale Real Madrid 2019-20

Zinedine Zidane brushed off a question about Gareth Bale's future at Real Madrid, insisting the team is united.

Despite not spending much time on the pitch, the 30-year-old, who remained at the club after a move to Jiangsu Suning broke down following Zidane's return last year, has continued to make headlines.

During the 2-0 victory over DeportivoAlaveslast week he was seen on camera with his face mask over his eyes, before turning and laughing with his team-mates.

He then simulated holding a pair of binoculars in front of his face while he watched Madrid's meeting with Granada on Monday from the stands at LosCarmenes.

Asked if Bale should leave Madrid, Zidane told a news conference: "What a question.

"You try to put things between us, but you won't be able to. Every day you ask the same thing. You can do it; you have the right to ask what you want.

"But we're united. Gareth, James Rodriguez, everyone."

Bale has made just 12 Liga starts for Madrid over the course of the 2019-20 season, with Zidane preferring to rotate the Welshman with the likes of young Brazilian forwards Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo and Luka Jovic alongside undisputed starter Karim Benzema, who has featured in all but one of Madrid's 36 Primera games to date.

That lack of playing time has contributed to a huge drop in goals, with the forward hitting just three times in all competitions compared to 14 in 2018-19 and 21 the previous term, his last partnering Cristiano Ronaldo in the Merengue attack.

His woes, however, have had little effect overall on Zidane's men, who are on the verge of reclaiming the Liga title they last lifted back in 2018.
