Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane didn’t play Gareth Bale a single minute during the team’s preseason debut against Bayern Munich and the coach publicly admitted that Bale could be leaving the club in the next few days.

“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,” said Zidane.

“Zidane is a disgrace and very ungrateful, he is not showing respect for a player who did so much for Real Madrid,” Barnett told AFP. “We’re working on his departure,” he added.

It’s clear that Bale will leave Real Madrid even though it looked like he could stay. No reports have been published about his potential destination and the fee, though a return to the Barclays Premier League seems quite likely.

Bale’s future should be solved in the next few days.
