Zidane makes Bale U-turn

Real Madrid
Real Madrid star Gareth Bale is running out of options after Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said they are not interested in doing a deal.

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has made a U-turn on his stance over Wales international forward Gareth Bale.

The former Tottenham ace was widely expected to leave the Bernabeu this summer after falling out of favour with Zidane.

He was on the verge of joining a Chinese Super League club last month but that deal fell through after the clubs failed to agree on a fee.

Bale’s agent has spoken publicly about his clients’ desire to leave but it now appears he is set to stay following Zidane’s latest comments.

Zidane said: “It seemed that (Bale) was going to leave but today he is here with us. The dynamics are changing, things are changing. From now on, I will rely on him, as on others.

“I will rely on all the players who are here. He has his place, he is an important player and I hope that all the players will make the task of choosing a team difficult.”
