Bale has only played 100 minutes for Madrid in LaLiga since the competition returned from a three-month lockdown amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Zidane revealed that Real are united, includin Bale and James
Zinedine Zidane dismissed the question about the future of Gareth Bale at Real Madrid, insisting the squad is united. Bale has only played 100 minutes for Madrid in LaLiga since the competition returned from a three-month lockdown amid the coronavirus pandemic. Even though the 30-year-old who remained in the club after a move to Jiangsu Suning broke down following Zidane’s return last year. During a 2–0 victory over Alaves previous week, Bale has seen on camera with a face mask over his eyes before turning and laughing with his team-mates. He imitated, holding a pair of binoculars in front of his face. When he looked at the meeting between Madrid and Granada on Monday from the stands at Los Carmenes.
Real are on the verge of winning the LaLiga trophy
When asked whether Bale should leave Madrid, Zidane said at a press conference: “What a question. You are trying to arrange things between us, but you cannot. Every day you ask the same thing. You have the right to ask what you want. “But we are united. Gareth, James Rodriguez, everyone.” Bale made just 12 Liga start for Madrid during the 2019-20 season. Zidane prefers to rotate the Welshman with young Brazilian forwards Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo and Luka Jovic alongside with the undisputed starter Karim Benzema. So he has featured in all but one of Real’s 36 LaLiga games to date. That lack of playing time contributed to a massive drop in goals. The striker hitting only three times in all competitions compared to 14 in 2018-19 and 21 in the previous term. His last partnering Cristiano Ronaldo in the attack of the Merengues.
However, his troubles had little effect overall on Zizou’s squad. They are on the verge of claiming the LaLiga title, which they raised for the last time back in 2018. Madrid will become crowned champions if they beat Villarreal on Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano on Thursday. Despite if Barcelona fails to beat Osasuna in a match that will be played simultaneously in Catalonia.
