Zidane Makes Admission About Bale's Future
Gareth Bale was heavily linked with a move away from Real Madrid in recent months, but manager Zinedine Zidane has now commented on the Welshman's situation with the team.
The Frenchman was on the verge of leaving the club last month, which was the reason for his absence in some of the pre-season encounters.
However, the Welshman who was reportedly frozen out by Zidane at the end of last season is still with the LaLiga outfit, although the transfer window closes at the end of the match.
Zidane has now admitted that he will rely on the Wales international as the season gets underway this weekend.
"It seemed that (Bale) was going to leave but today he is here with us," Zidane was quoted as saying by Sky Sports News.
"The dynamics are changing, things are changing. From now on, I will rely on him, as on others.
"I will rely on all the players who are here. He has his place, he is an important player and I hope that all the players will make the task of choosing a team difficult."
