The 30-year-old has been subject to intense transfer speculation and it appears he's finally set for a move away from the Spanish capital.

He was left out of the club's pre-season defeat to Bayern Munich and speaking after the game, Zidane revealed that he's hoping to offload the Welshman within "24 or 48" hours.

"We hope he leaves soon," the Frenchman said about Bale. "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.

"The exit is the coach's decision, and also of the player, who knows the situation.

"The situation will change, I do not know if in 24 or 48 hours, but it will - and it's a good thing for everyone."

Bale has spent six glittering seasons at the Bernabeu after completing a then-world record £86 transfer in 2013.

He's won the lot including four Champions League titles, which includes his superb performance in Kiev against Liverpool. He came off the bench to inspire his side to European glory.

However, the decorated winger has failed to win over the Real Madrid fans and, more importantly, Zidane.

Bale's days in Spain are numbered with some of Europe's elite interested in acquiring his services this summer.

Manchester United, Bayern Munich and Tottenham are thought to be eyeing him up ahead of tabling an official bid. Not to mention an unnamed Chinese Super League team who're prepared to offer him a huge wage package.

Bale still has three years left to run on his mega £600,000-a-week contract.
