Zidane started Bale in only one of Real's seven Champions League knockout games, and the pair were barely even on speaking terms during a particularly tense period in April.

Cristiano Ronaldo of Real Madrid reacts during Real Madrid team celebration at Cibeles Square after winning their 13th European Cup on May 27, 2018 in Madrid, Spain. I'm 37 years old and 34 of those have been as a fan of the club, that's something that can never be replaced. Their best player in the Champions League final, Gareth Bale, looks more likely to be departing. The last time was with my son when he won the Ballon D'Or.

According to Real Madrid ex-President Ramon Calderon, Welsh forward Gareth Bale was never going to match five-time Balon d'Or victor Cristiano Ronaldo's success at the Bernabeu. Moreover, he has a release clause that is set at €1bn ($1.16bn) and there are very few teams in the world that can afford the wages he is on at the moment.

Real Madrid will be looking forward to defend the world champion title they won in 2017.

"I know if you say something like that after a game you lost, it sounds like you are a little bit a bad loser but it was, for me, kind of a harsh challenge", Klopp said.

Bale had insisted he wants to be playing week in and week out, sparking rumours of his potential departure to United who have been interested in him since last summer.

According to Spanish publication Marca, Jose Mourinho's United side are desperate to take Bale to Old Trafford this summer.

He also played a decisive role in winning the 2016 crown against Atletico and struck a memorable victor in the 2014 King's Cup final against arch rivals Barcelona, although his career at Real has been somewhat overshadowed by persistent muscle injuries and a long spell out following ankle surgery.

AS go on to claim that PSG have already made an offer for the Portuguese star, and the French champions would be willing to give him wages that match Lionel Messi's at Barcelona - €45m per year.
