“We’ll see. I will not say what will happen. He’s at Madrid and he has two years left on his contract. It is not the time to talk about that. We do not rejoice at the jeers, but the fans want their team to do better,” Zidane told reporters when asked if Bale was leaving in the summer.
Real Madrid have been linked with several big-name transfers in the summer, including Chelsea’s Eden Hazard, which could put even more pressure on Bale’s shoulders.
With the team out of title contention for the summer, it’s pretty normal to see fans pointing fingers, and Bale has been one of their favorite scapegoats due to his inconsistency and proneness to get hurt.
Nonetheless, Zizou claimed the team is bound to make a late push in this season to finish the year strongly and get the moral up following a disastrous season.
“In this situation, we will go out little by little, insisting on working and thinking positively. This season we will not win anything, we already know in our heads. Playing for nothing is complicated. I’m not saying that we’re going to quit and stop fighting. No, that’s why the second half was very good, we took initiative. But thinking about the seven matches we have left, we will have to fight as a team,” he concluded.
