Media and pundits were frantically trying to uncover the cause behind Zidane’s decision to drop the winger, with an explanation expected after the match.

The expanation did come via Zidane’s press conference: “Bale did not play because he is very close to an exit. We hope he can leave soon, it is even possible tomorrow. We are working to finalize his move to a new team”, Zidane told the press.

The story of Madrid and Bale is now likely coming to an end. Questions now arise as to where the Welshman could end up and how much will Madrid make off his sale?
