Bale got himself a new manager yesterday when Zinedine Zidane returned to the club he won three successive Champions League trophies with.

The 46-year-old left the Bernabeu last May but is now back in charge having signed a contract until 2022.

And while Real Madrid fans rejoiced at Zizou’s return, Bale may not have been so happy.

It is rumoured that the Welshman did not get on very well with Zidane, who is looking to bring in the likes of Eden Hazard and Christian Eriksen this summer.

Zidane will be heavily backed in the transfer window by club president Florentino Perez and could make Bale one of his first big-name sacrifices.

Bale is 29 years old, turns 30 in July and appears to have lost the backing of Madridistas.

The former Tottenham winger’s agent believes the treatment of his client by Real fans is "nothing short of a disgrace”.

"This generation of Real fans will be talking about Gareth's goals for years to come," Bale’s representative, Jonathan Barnett, said.
