Gareth Bale

Gareth Bale is planning to stay at Real Madrid for the rest of his career despite the return of Zinedine Zidane, says the forward’s agent.

Zidane’s reappointment as the successor to the sacked Santiago Solari has been widely reported to be bad news for Wales star Bale.

The 29-year-old has been booed by Madrid fans during another injury-hit campaign, Bale scoring just seven LaLiga goals in 21 appearances.

Bale’s agent Jonathan Barnett previously branded the club’s supporters “nothing short of a disgrace” over their treatment of his client, who he denies is planning to leave.

“He wants to play all his career for Real Madrid and if it does not work out, we will talk again,” Barnett said to BBC Sport.

“He will talk with Mr Zidane, take it from there and then see at the end of the season.”
