Gareth Bale has reportedly been told by Zinedine Zidane that he will not play a single minute for Real Madrid for as long as the Frenchman is in charge.
Zidane has already publicly admitted that the Wales international is not part of his plans for the season ahead and he did not travel to Germany this week for the friendlies with Tottenham Hotspur and Fenerbahce.
Bale’s £1m-a-week switch to Chinese club Jiangsu Suning fell through earlier this week, supposedly as president Florentino Perez wants Zidane to make use of the ex-Tottenham Hotspur ace.
According to The Sun, however, Zidane has made it clear to Bale that he will not be selected again while they are both at the Bernabeu.
The 30-year-old is under contract with Los Blancos until 2022 and is allegedly being paid £650,000 a week.
