Speaking to journalists after Madrid’s International Champions Cup 3-1 loss to Baryen Munich in the United States last night, the French coach said Bale’s departure is imminent.

“Bale did not play because he is very close to an exit. We hope he can leave soon, it is even possible tomorrow. We are working to finalize his move to a new team.” said Zidane

“We hope he leaves soon, it would be best for everyone. We are working on his transfer to a new team.” he added
