Gareth Bale’s agent brands Zidane ‘a disgrace’ over exit talk

Gareth Bale’s agent brands Zidane ‘a disgrace’ over exit talk.Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane a “disgrace” after the Frenchman revealed that the La Liga giants were ready to offload the Wales star in a matter of days.

Zidane left Bale out of the Real squad for Saturday’s 3-1 exhibition loss to Bayern Munich in Houston, and after the match he revealed he had been dropped because the club was “working on his departure”, adding that he hoped it happens soon, “for everyone’s sake”.

“Zidane is a disgrace, he shows no respect for a player that has done so much for Real Madrid,” Bale’s agent Jonathan Barnett told AFP.

Asked whether Bale is close to leaving Madrid, Barnett added: “We are working.

Bale has been frozen out in Madrid by Zidane despite helping his side to a Spanish title and four Champions Leagues since arriving from Tottenham Hotspur six year ago.

His brace, including a brilliant bicycle kick, sank Liverpool in 2018 final, but he was shunted aside by Zidane as soon as he returned to the Real bench in early March.

After Zidane’s reappointment, Bale played 90 minutes in just three of the remaining 11 matches, was left out completely four times and frequently substituted when he did play.

He was denied a chance to say goodbye at the end of last season when he was left on the bench in a 2-0 loss to Real Betis that saw Zidane’s side submerged with boos and whistles.

However, Zidane insists that his treatment of the 30-year-old forward “is nothing personal”, even though Bale would be welcome at some of Europe’s biggest clubs.

“There comes a time when things are done because they need to be done,” Zidane added after the Bayern defeat.

“I’ve not got anything against him. We have to make decisions and change things, that’s all there is to it.

“I don’t know if this will happen in 24 or 48 hours’ time. The situation will change and it’s for the best for everyone.”

Bale joined Real Madrid too much fanfare, a blockbuster transfer fee and a big salary that may prove to be an obstacle for all but the richest teams.

He has three seasons left on his deal and has been linked to Tottenham, Manchester United and Bayern.
