Zidane: My door is open for Bale

Zinedine Zidane has offered to be Gareth Bale’s ‘mentor’ at Real Madrid once his move from Tottenham is completed.

The Spurs attacker has been spotted in Marbella this weekend, with his switch to Santiago Bernabeu expected to be announced next week.

And the former Blancos midfielder, who is now Carlo Ancelotti’s assistant, has claimed he will help the Wales international.

“I know what it’s like to be the world’s most expensive player,” he told the Sunday People.

“So I will try and offer advice and act as a mentor to Bale.

“There’s always a lot of expectation when you’re a big signing. But as a player you do not think about the figure.

“My door is always open for him.”
