The Welshman played golf, while the rest of the Real Madrid squad made the final preparations before the Champions League quarter-final against Manchester City.
At the press conference the day before the quarter-finals, Zidane provided startling information about the Gareth Bale situation.
– A lot has been said, but there is a respectful relationship between club and player. All I can say is that he would not play. The rest is between me and him, Zidane said according to The Mirror.
Played golf while the team prepared for battle
According to Daily Mail is the background that Bale himself has concluded that he will not play a minute anyway.
The Welshman was not on the pitch for Real Madrid in the last seven league games of the season.
The newspaper now believes that the former Tottenham player risks the anger of Zinedine Zidanes and his teammates after playing golf, while the rest of the team prepares for the match.
The Spanish TV channel El Chiringuito de Jugones has filmed the 31-year-old as he strolls around the golf course.
Little to suggest transition
Despite the fact that he has ended up in the cold, according to the Daily Mail, there is little indication that Bale will leave Real Madrid immediately.
The Welshman has a staggering annual salary of 220 million kroner and only Eden Hazard earns more than the Welshman.
Last summer, it seemed for a long time that a transition to Chinese Jiangsu Suning was highly topical, but it went in the sink.
Bale has played 251 games and scored 105 goals for Real Madrid after the transfer from Tottenham in 2013.
