Gareth Bale wants to stay at Real Madrid, says his agent

Gareth Bale’s agent Jonathan Barnett insists the Welshman wants to stay at Real Madrid despite Zinedine Zidane’s return as head coach.

Bale and Zidane were reported not to be so good friends before his surprise stepping down less than 10 months ago but Barnett maintains his client wants to continue playing for the capital club.

"Yes, why not? He wants to play all his career for Real Madrid and if it does not work out, we will talk again," Barnett told BBC Five Live when quizzed on Bale’s future.

"He will talk with Mr. Zidane, take it from there and then see at the end of the season.

"We [Barnett and Bale] speak a lot. The closest person to him is my son Joshua who is really his agent and he looks after him, he has done a good job.

"Gareth wanted to play one way and Zidane wanted to play another," the agent said. "That was the cause of it and over a period of time it got worse.

"If you let Gareth play the way he wants to play, having a run of games in a row not in and out, he can be right up there with Cristiano Ronaldo. He still has a great talent."
