Zinedine Zidane has included Gareth Bale in his first La Liga team of the 2019-20 season.
The Frenchman has previously confirmed that the club are seeking to sell the Welsh international before the Spanish transfer window closes in September 2nd, however he has surprisingly named him in the starting line up to face Celta Vigo at the Estadio Balaidos.
Zidane has not selected any of his summer signings in the starting XI, with Ferland Mendy and Eden Hazard both ruled out through injury.
Celta Vigo boss Fran Escriba has only included one of his own summer signings in his first La Liga game of 2019-20, with former FC Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez included.
