Zidane despairs as ten-man Real Madrid lose again

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has a rocky relationship with Gareth Bale and the Frenchman's return to the Los Blancos has once again put the player's future at the club in doubt.

"It's a shame Bale is not playing", he told Goal.

With Zidane opting once again not to include Gareth Bale in his squad, there was a rare start for youngster Brahim Diaz and the 19-year-old got Madrid off to the ideal start, coolly finishing on six minutes after a solo run down the left wing.

Keylor Navas has reportedly been informed that he is surplus to requirements at Real Madrid and that he will be allowed to leave the Bernabéu this summer after five seasons at the club.

The former Spurs forward's agent Jonathan Barnett has admitted his superstar client's future is up in the air but has insisted he wants to remain at the Bernabeu and would not be cheap for any prospective buyers.

"It's what I have to do with the players, all the players, those who stay and those who have to go".

China hits back with tariffs on $91 billion of United States goods
Not only has the US not provoked China over trade, but Washington is also decades late in trying to level the trade playing field. China has strategically used tariffs to hurt Trump's base in the Midwest through tactics like limiting soybean purchases.

Zidane has not hidden his disdain for the player after leaving him out of the squad for the last two games against Villarreal and Real Sociedad. But that's up to Mr. Zidane.

Paul Pogba's huge wage demands are holding up his talks with Real Madrid. Zidane had positive words to say about players like Isco and Marcelo.

Zidane said: "Nobody can take away what we did in the Champions League in the last few years".

Bale has been with the Spanish giants since joining from Tottenham Hotspur in 2013 for a then-world record transfer fee of 100.8 million euros.

In a report by Marca, when asked about the conversation, Zidane said, "I won't tell you anything about it, private conversations are private".
