With a certain Real Madrid superstar rrumoured to be refusing to leave the club, Zinedine Zidane could reportedly make him train with the reserves in order to force him out.
According to The Sun, Los Blancos have told Gareth Bale he will be training with the reserves if he does not move on in the next transfer window.
Zidane has reportedly made it clear the Welshman will not be part of his plans next season, something the winger has seemingly accepted.
Bale's agent recently admitted his client is happy to see out his contract, which expires in 2022, as he is content in Madrid.
The 29-year-old will apparently only leave if another club is able to match his current salary, which is said to be about €19 million (R304 million) a season.
The former Tottenham Hotspur man was not a favourite during Zidane’s first spell in Real's hot seat, and reports suggest not much has changed since the manager's return.
Bale has played 42 games across all competitions for Los Blancos so far this season, scoring 14 goals and assisting a further six strikes.
