Gareth Bale ‘willing to put differences with Zinedine Zidane aside and fight for his place at Real Madrid’ amid ongoing rift with French manager
- Gareth Bale is happy to put his poor relationship with Zinedine Zidane aside
- The Real Madrid manager was happy for Bale to leave the club in the summer
- But a move to China fell through and Bale has since struggled for regular action
- Bale is now willing to fight for his place at the Bernabeu and see out his contract
Gareth Bale is reportedly willing to put his fractious relationship with Zinedine Zidane to one side in a bid to salvage his Real Madrid career.
Zidane was openly willing to let the Welsh winger leave the Bernabeu in the summer and a move to the Chinese Super League almost came to fruition before it collapsed.
Bale has continued to be on the fringes of the Real Madrid squad this season as he tries to win his manager over.
Gareth Bale wants to put his strained relationship with Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane aside
Zidane has decided Bale is surplus to requirements and wanted to sell him last summer
But, according to The Mirror, Bale is willing to cast aside their differences once and for all as he looks to stay in the Spanish capital for the foreseeable future.
The former Tottenham star is currently under contract until June 2022, earning a staggering £600,000-a-week.
It is claimed he will not be seeking a move away from the club any time soon and is more than happy to let his contract expire before looking to move on.
Bale has made 18 appearances across all competitions so far this season, scoring three goals and contributing two assists.
Gareth Bale is one of a number of stars that could be shipped out to ease the size of the squad
AS Diario’s cover story on Wednesday revealed how, as of June 30, Real Madrid will have 37 players under contract at the Bernabeu which will reportedly spark a mass clear out this summer.
Accompanying a graphic that showed Zidane surrounded by a number of puzzle pieces, to represent the different players, they report that the Frenchman needs to find a new home ‘for a third’ of the squad.
Players such as Bale and James Rodriguez both remain on lucrative contracts at the club and an inability to shift such big earners could stifle moves for some of their top targets.
Bale could be one of the first to be sold, given Zidane’s willingness to sell him last summer before a switch to China broke down.
