The Los Blancos coach have confirmed that Gareth Bale will be remain at the Bernabeu this season. Bale played a crucial part in Madrid 3-1 win at Celta Vigo and the manager was full of praise for his players.
According to Marca – During pre-season ‘better tomorrow’ was the response Zidaneg when asked if Balew going to move on from Madrid but after starting at Balaidos and starring in the win, it seems his future will be in the Spanish capital.
Bale had been linked with a move to China last month but the transfer fell through. Now with some players injured and Premier league transfer window closed, it becomes highly unexpected for Bale to be sold.
“He [Bale] is going to stay,” Zidane told the press. “Everyone we have helps us to think positively.
“You have to focus on the season, nothing more. [Eden] Hazard’s injury was bad luck for us, but it didn’t change the idea we had with Bale starting the game.
“Gareth, James… Everyone here is going to defend the shirt the way it deserves to be.”
Modric was suspended after receiving a red card for tackle on Denis Suarez and will now miss Madrid’s next game.
Zidane was asked if the Modric suspension meant the club needs another midfielder.
“We are here with the same again,” he said with a smile. “We will make do for the next game with the players we have.”
