It’ll be best for everyone if he leaves tomorrow, Zidane’s comment on Bale’s future at Madrid irks Twitter users [Video]

The cloud of doubt surrounding Gareth Bale’s future at the Santiago Bernabéu became clear last night following Zinedine Zidane’s comment at a post-match press briefing in Houston, United States.

Zidane revealed the Real Madrid are in talks with an unnamed club about Bale’s imminent transfer from the Spanish club.

The Wales international joined Real from Tottenham Hotspur for a then world-record £85.3 million fee in 2013 and, despite being hit by a series of injuries, he has helped the club win four Champions League titles and LaLiga.

However, he has not been enjoying a good relationship with Zidane since the Frenchman returned to Madrid a few months ago, fuelling speculations that he might not be needed on the team in the next season, with the likes of Manchester United, Tottenham, Bayern and Internazionale among the clubs having been linked with him.

Zidane, however, confirmed that Bale was left out of Madrid’s matchday squad to face Bayern Munich in the International Champions Cup in Houston on Saturday night because “the club is working on his departure”.

Zizou, whose side were beaten 3-1 by Bayern, also said he hopes a deal for Bale can be struck soon “for everyone’s sake”.

He said:

He wasn’t included in the squad because the club is working on his departure and that’s why he didn’t play. We’ll have to see what happens in the coming days. We’ll have to see if it goes through tomorrow, if it does then all the better. Let’s hope, for everyone’s sake, that it happens soon. The club is dealing with the club that he’ll move to.

“We have to make decisions and change things, that’s all there is to it.

“You’re aware of the situation and there’ll be a change 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. That’s how things go.”

His comment sparked outrage on micro-blogging site Twitter as many football fans believe the Spanish club is not treating Bale with enough respect after helping the club to win several trophies.

Fans are attacking Zidane over the comment and Bale, Zidane, Zizou are presenting trending at the top spot of Twitter Nigeria.

Bale’s agent Jonathan Barnett has also slammed the Madrid head coach over his comment.

He said

“Zidane is a disgrace. He shows no respect for a player that has done so much for Real Madrid.”

The agent was then asked if the player is on his way out of Real Madrid.

“We are working on it,” Barnett said.
