Real Madrid manager Zinedine has made a shocking u-turn on the future of Gareth Bale at the club.
Zidane had earlier stated that the Welsh international player will leave the club this summer as he’s not in his future plans and his manner of approach on the situation led the Bale’s agent, Jonathan Barrett labeling him as a disgrace.
Bale came close to joining Chinese Super League (CSL) outfit Jiangsu Suning earlier this summer before Real Madrid president Florentino Perez was said to have called off the deal.
The Welshman had already agreed on a whopping £1m weekly wage with the Chinese club who won’t pay any transfer fee for him if the transfer had gone ahead.
Zidane seems to have relaxed his stance for Gareth Bale to leave the club this summer following his admission that both the Welshman and Colombian international James Rodriguez were part of the team.
He was speaking with reporters shortly after the club friendly game with Italian Serie A giants AS Roma.
Long-term Manchester United target Bale has been at Real Madrid for six years since his then world-record move from Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur.
Real Madrid have been repaid with four Champions League titles and one league title.
