What happened between Ronaldo & Bale at HT vs Juventus that angered Zidane

It’s been five years since Gareth Bale completed a then-world record move to Real Madrid and signs suggest his time at the Bernabeu could be up.

Bale was signed as the potential heir to Cristiano Ronaldo’s throne, yet injuries and inconsistency have stopped him from realising his potential.

Now, the Welshman is out of favour under Zinedine Zidane and there are reports that Chelsea’s Eden Hazard could be brought in as his replacement.

It was during the recent 3-1 defeat at home to Juventus that Bale’s future was really brought into question, with Zidane substituting the 28-year-old at half-time.

No reason was given by Real’s manager, though he insisted earlier this week that there is no problem between him and Bale.
