Bale is not happy. That, at this point, is not in doubt. Neither play what you want nor have the confidence you would like. He had it, not so long ago, his coach. Zidane endorsed it for a long time, made the BBC something fixed and, above all, gave it -and has given it- opportunities. Until he decided to change. The reason? Your performance. Gareth has not been an aspiring to win the Golden Ball or to replace Cristiano Ronaldo in the Madrid . No, now it's one more. And that, the Welshman does not finish pleasing him. It thinks special. He knows what it cost and with the poster that arrived, and he wants to be treated as such. But it is not possible. There are players (Lucas Vázquez and Asensio, among others) who are better than him. What is he going to do?
Zidane does not marry anyone. He believes that the Welshman has lowered his performance. That's why he left him on the bench in Turin and changed it in the break in the return against Juventus . Bale did not appear in the entire first half. Neither influenced the game, nor offered, nor was decisive. Moreover, meanwhile, the 'Old Lady' scored two goals (both from Mandzukic ). And, of course, before that circumstance, the French coach modified the scheme: he removed Casemiro -to bet on another system- and decided that Bale would not play the second half. The reason? Lucas Vázquez has shown, on countless occasions during the last few months, that he is in better shape and contributes more to his team.
This situation has made him rethink the club its sale in the next summer. Zidane is not happy with his performance and, although he has always insisted that he wants to keep all his players, he would not see his sale badly. The problem? Your salary Although many other teams would be interested in him, not everyone could pay him what he charges at Real Madrid. Therefore, the player advocates to continue in Madrid. It will? It depends, in part, on what you do from here to the end of the season. If his performance is good, the French coach will not hesitate to defend him.
This Sunday he will have a new opportunity to continue at Madrid . Bale will be in the game against Málaga in a inconsequential match (20:45 hours). The white team has almost impossible to fight for the League -although if it aspires to occupy the second place that belongs right now to the Atlético – and its goal is the Champions League. However, Zidane will face these matches as a testing ground to get the best possible match against the Bayern Munich semifinals.
With that objective, the coach French will also make more changes. Kovacic will replace Modric which is touched; Achraf and Theo Hernández will occupy the laterals; Sergio Ramos will return after his absence before Juve ; and Lucas Vázquez will be from the game. The one that surely will not appear will be Cristiano Ronaldo, who seeks dosificarse in this end of season. With this panorama, he will appear on Madrid and Bale. Both, in this end of season, scrutinizing themselves and thinking if it suits them to continue together next season. That is what will be decided in the next matches
