Real Madrid want to offload Gareth Bale this summer
They say Real and United have been locked in talks for weeks and an agreement has now been reached for the Old Trafford No.1, who nearly joined the Spanish giants in 2015.
But speaking in his news conference to preview Real Madrid's LaLiga clash with Athletic Bilbao on Tuesday evening, Zidane insists both Bale and his Real teammate Karim Benzema should not feel concerned over their futures. "Against Bayern, we will do our work, and the officials will do their jobs".
Many believe Zidane has now reached a point where he will be happy to let Bale exit the Bernabeu this summer.
Zidane has preferred Benzema as a partner for Ronaldo up front this season but the Frenchman has managed only one goal in his last nine games.
Zinedine Zidane's team are 15 points off their bitter rivals Barcelona and four behind Atletico Madrid as they continue their push to finish strongly in the league. "We're in a good run of form, we're healthy, without any problems and that's important". And to do that playing well. I'm sure some people will probably come in with some bids, but I don't have any interest in selling him, he's a great goalkeeper.
Ronaldo did not travel with Los Blancos side that had a comfortable 2-1 win against Malaga in La Liga at the weekend.
Zidane denied that Bale and Benzema are upset at no longer being automatic picks, while suggesting both needed to contribute more to start against Bayern.
"Managing the team? It's not easy, I wanted to do it as best as possible, rotating the squad and resting players, even though not everyone can rest". "He has to score goals of course, he knows that - he knows he can do other things but he has to score goals. We want to get closer to second place and we will try to put in a good performance".
