Zinedine Zidane and Gareth Bale haven't spoken since the start of May


Incredibly, Gareth Bale is still on Real Madrid's books with less than a month of the La Liga transfer window to go. When he moved to the Spanish capital in 2013, the Welshman described it as a "dream come true". Little did he know that it would turn into a nightmare upon the return of Zinedine Zidane partway through last season.  Earlier in the summer, Los Blancos' openly hostile manager told the media he hoped Bale's departure was "imminent", adding: "If it happens tomorrow, it would be better".  In fact, the Daily Mail          reports that Zizou has not spoken to Bale since the start of May.
