Gareth Bale happy at Real Madrid despite transfer links, insists Zinedine Zidane

Man Utd Liverpool Gareth Bale Real Madrid

However, when asked recently if winger Gareth Bale and striker Karim Benzema will still be playing at the Santiago Bernabeu next season, Zidane insisted he is not looking to get rid of them.

Zinedine Zidane has once again insisted that there is no problem between him and Gareth Bale - and fans have once again demonstrated their dismay at the festering issue at Real Madrid.

Real were in disarray before the transfer window opened at the start of the year and a mid-season spree was widely talked up.

The Frenchman also addressed the ongoing rumour that he will be looking for a new goalkeeper at the end of this season.

"He played a great game and I'm happy for him".

The 30-year-old has managed to score only nine goals in 38 games across all competitions this season, while providing 11 assists. "They don't come across as sad to me".

Real host Athletic Bilbao on Wednesday and Bale will be hoping for another chance to state his case ahead of the first leg of their Champions League semi-final against Bayern Munich next week. "But we must think about the good moments recently".

Bale has missed a number of high-profile matches of late and was left out of the squad entirely for the 2-1 win over Malaga at the weekend.

"I play football and I try to help my teammates and to win everything there is to win, but I don't care if my name is in the papers, it doesn't mean anything", the 81-cap France global said.

Former Manchester United star Ronaldo was put through his paces along with the rest of the Real squad and seemed in good spirits despite his side being in third place in La Liga, some 15 points adrift of runaway leaders Barcelona.
