Chelsea told £25m bargain leaving Ajax and Zidane has Bale summer message
Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has told Chelsea he is unsure whether or not Bale will still be at the club this summer.
With the news that Eden Hazard could be all set to leave the club in the next few weeks, there has been a lot of transfer speculation in the media over the past few months which have suggested that we will be looking to try and sign the unhappy Bale.[the_ad id=”164″]
Zidane and Bale had a fractured relationship during the Frenchman’s first spell at the club, and his return looked likely to signal the end of the Welshman’s stay in Madrid after being dropped by the Frenchman over the past few weeks.
Zidane told Sky Sports: “He’ll be part of the squad tomorrow and that’s all I can tell you.
“You’ll see the team that we put out. I don’t know whether this will be his last game.
“We’re at the end of the season and next year there’ll be changes, but I don’t know whether this will be his last game or not”.
Meanwhile, Ajax Director of football Marc Overmars has admittedt winger Hakin Ziyech will be leaving the Dutch Champions this season.
The 26-year-old has been one of the standout stars of Ajax’s squad this season, weighing in with 16 goals and 13 assists in the Eredivisie from a wide midfield position as he helped Ajax clinch their first League title in five years while also reaching the semi-finals of the Champions League.
However, he is heading for the exit signs over the next few weeks as Ajax look set to lose a number of their talented youngsters, with reports he has a £25 million release clause in his current contract.
Addressing Ziyech’s future, Overmars said on Telefoot: ‘He leaves when a top club comes. He is in focus because of his achievements in the Champions League.
‘Many big clubs are buzzing around him. We promised Hakim [that we would] agree to a good transfer.’
