Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane, has assured Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale of their future at the club.
Bale continues to be linked with a return to the Premier League, as he struggles to hold down a regular starting spot in Zidane’s team.
Ahead of Wednesday’s LaLiga clash against Athletic Bilbao, Zidane insists Bale is still part of his plans.
When asked directly about the future of Bale and teammate Karim Benzema, Zidane said: “I do not think their future is in danger here. That’s football, we need all the players.
“They do not make a sad impression on me. They train well. Of course, they would like to play more often, but apart from that, everyone works well.
“It will always be the case that some players are in better form than others.”
