Zinedine Zidane is desperate to offload Gareth Bale because he has never liked the Real Madrid star, according to Bale’s agent Jonathan Barnett.

Speaking to Journal du Dimanche Barnett said: “It’s simple, Zidane doesn’t like Gareth. There’s no relationship between them. There never has been.”

Bale’s proposed move to Chinese club Jiangsu Suning fell through over the weekend and the Wales international is set to remain at Real Madrid.

The 30-year-old has scored 102 goals in 231 games for Spanish heavyweights Real Madrid since leaving Tottenham six years ago.
