It is very clear what I have done with Bale - Zidane

Real Madrid have told former No 1 goalkeeper Keylor Navas he is no longer in their plans and he can leave this summer, according to reports in Spain.

And Zidane also shrugged off persistent suggestions his club are to launch a bid to prize France star Pogba away from Manchester United.

"I need to be thinking about tomorrow's game and us performing well".

Los Blancos have now played two straight games without Bale included at all and if he's not selected in their final game of the season against Real Betis, it could put Europe's top clubs on alert.

Lyon midfielder Tanguy Ndombele is said to be one of Zidane's biggest targets, as is Chelsea winger Eden Hazard, who has reportedly already decided on where his future lies next season.

Zidane, who expects to have Karim Benzema available after injury, also appeared to take a swipe at rivals Barcelona after their midweek Champions League capitulation to Liverpool.

"The Champions League, as we've seen this year, is really tough". It was a real struggle to win it and that's why we place such value on these four Champions League crowns.

"Private conversations between myself and the players stay private". "He knows how things work".

"My job is to coach Real Madrid, and he has his own job". Zidane had positive words to say about players like Isco and Marcelo. On Bale's future, Zidane said: "We have not talked about that and we're not going to talk about that".

Fox Sports reports that Zidane believes the Gabonese global would be a ideal signing for Real Madrid since the club doesn't want to spend up to 100 million euros to sign Bale's replacement at Santiago Bernabeu.
