Despite this dilemma, Real Madrid will still try to move Bale. Manager Zinedine Zidane has previously said that he is hopeful that Bale would move on in the summer.

“Bale did not play because he is very close to leaving,” Zidane said after Real Madrid defeated Bayern Munich 3-1 in a International Champions Cup game. “We hope he leaves soon. It would be best for everyone. We are working on his transfer to a new team. I have nothing personal against him, but there comes a time where things are done because they must be done, I have to make decisions. We have to change.
