Zidane unclear on Bale future

Zinedine Zidane refused to be drawn on speculation linking Gareth Bale with a move away from Real Madrid after comments from Jose Mourinho.

The Manchester United boss hinted at United’s interest in the Welsh forward ahead of the two club’s clashing in Tuesday’s Super Cup, but the Madrid boss refused to respond.

"Well, Bale is a Real Madrid player and that is all I can say,” Zidane told reporters.

"What I want to talk to you about now is tomorrow's match because tomorrow we have a really important match.

"We are here – him, me and all the other players, and all the fans are here for tomorrow's match only. That's it.

"So, really, that stuff doesn't interest me very much, I think what's important is that the player is feeling well, on top of that, he's had a lot of continuous training sessions with us and that's what is the most important.

"At the end of last season it wasn't easy for him, he was almost out for four months through injury but now he is very well, very concentrated, he trains with the team.

"What interests me and what is important for us is not what the Coach said, it's what we are going to do tomorrow. That is all."
