Gareth Bale's agent, Jonathan Barnett, insisted that the Welshman will not be leaving Real Madrid on any sort of loan deal this summer, as he is only interested in a permanent move away from the club.
Zinedine Zidane stated that Gareth Bale will be leaving the club as soon as possible as he isn't in his plans, and that Real Madrid is currently in talks with a club in order to complete the transfer as it is of the best interest of both parties that they part ways.
Barnett replied to Zidane's comments by saying "There will be no makeshift deals to get him out of the club. Gareth is one of the best players on the planet. I can guarantee you he will not be going on loan to any club."
To make their relationship even worse, after Real Madrid's loss against Bayern Munich on Sunday, Zidane went out and said "Gareth didn't play because he didn't want to."
Bale has barely played over the last few years, whilst a major reason for that were his recurrent injuries, he also had to endure plenty of time on the bench due to being dropped by the countless number of managers that Real Madrid have had recently.
The Welshman has been linked with a mega-move to the Chinese Super League, with a deal worth around £15.25 million every year being on the cards. Bale has also attracted interest from Inter Milan, Manchester United and also his former club, Tottenham Hotspur.
