Marca’s front page on Tuesday read: ‘Again only Benzema’, referring to the Frenchman’s goal against Leganes.

‘Karim cancels out the advantage of Leganes, but Madrid cannot manage more’

‘The Frenchman is the scorer of the last five Los Blancos goals… barely ten minutes for Bale’.

Speaking ahead of the game against Leganes, Zidane didn’t give much away about whether he intends to keep Bale.

He said: ‘There are seven games left. Let’s see how we play. There will be changes but Gareth is part of the team.’

GARETH BALE’S STATS THIS SEASON 

La Liga: 26 games, eight goals, two assists

Champions League: Seven games, three goals, two assists

Copa del Rey: Three games

Club World Cup: Two games, three goals

UEFA Super Cup: One game, one assist

Total: 39 games, 14 goals, five assists 

Manchester United are among the clubs that have been linked with Bale, and it will be intriguing to see whether the 29-year-old will make a return to the Premier League.

Bale has won a host of trophies during his time at Real, including three Champions Leagues and the La Liga title.

However, the Wales international has endured a considerable amount of criticism from supporters this season, many of whom feel he hasn’t sufficiently filled the void left by Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure to Juventus. 

Following their draw with Leganes, Real are in third place in La Liga, 13 points adrift of leaders Barcelona. 

Real are back in action on Sunday when they host Athletic Bilbao.
