I have no problem with Bale, says Zidane

Bale was then not included in the squad for Sunday´s 2-1 win over Malaga in La Liga but Real insisted the plan had always been to rest players for the match.

Zinedine Zidane insists he has no problem with Gareth Bale despite substituting him at half-time during Real Madrid's Champions League clash against Juventus last week.

The transfer talk will only grow - as will Bale's flowing locks in the dugout.

'We're all on the same side and we need all the players, ' Zidane told reporters when discussing Bale and Karim Benzema. They don't come across as sad to me. But over the past few seasons, the Welshman has not been able to replicate most of his form from the past mainly due to injury and fitness issues. "I said after the last game that both of them want to score more but besides that they're working great".

"What I don't like is when people attack me when I play well, even if I don't score".

The French boss added that sometimes in a team full of great players it is hard to play each and every player on a regular basis, "It always happens in a team where you have some players on good form and that is what happening at the minute".

The Wales worldwide is fully fit again, but has struggled to nail down a regular spot under Zidane.

However, Benzema has endured the worst goal-scoring season of his career as he's managed to register just 5 La Liga goals and 9 in all competitions so far - which is the first time he's not found double figures in over a decade.

United have been linked with a mega-money move for Bale, but it remains to be seen whether Real would be willing to listen to offers for one of their marquee players.
