Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has fuelled rumours linking Gareth Bale with a move away from the club at the end of the season.

Much of the blame for Los Blancos' failures this season has fallen on the shoulders of the Welshman, who has struggled to help fill the void left by Cristiano Ronaldo.

While much of the criticism directed in the 29-year-old's direction is unfair, this hasn't stopped exit rumours from gaining traction, while Zidane's recent comments won't help the cause.

Real edged Eibar 2-1 on Saturday in another unconvincing Spanish LaLiga display.

Asked if Bale would be at Real Madrid next season, Zidane said: "We'll see, I'm not going to tell you what's going to happen. Gareth is a Real Madrid player, he has two years left on his contract. We will see. It is not the time to talk about this."

Bale, who scored a brace in last year's UEFA Champions League final win over Liverpool, has netted 14 goals in 38 matches across all competitions this season.
