Zinedine Zidane admits Gareth Bale's future remains unresolved  

Zinedine Zidane
has revealed Gareth Bale
's future remains unresolved, with the Real Madrid outcast no closer to a move away from the Bernabeu. 
The 30-year-old was relegated to the bench after Zidane's return as manager in March and there has been speculation linking Bale to a return to England. 
However, it is believed Los Blancos
president Florentino Perez has encouraged Zidane to hand the Welshman a reprieve.
'There is no problem with Bale, and I am not going to say there is a problem with him,' Zidane told the media at Madrid's pre-season training camp.
'Anything could happen. He has a contract so we will wait and see.
'But the situation with Bale has not changed since June.'
Bale signed a contract in 2016 keeping him at the Bernabeu until 2022, and he is thought to be the highest paid player at the club.
The winger has been unwilling to force a move away from Madrid and will not lower his wage demands; a stance which has deterred multiple clubs from making an offer. 
Zidane has also shown an interest in signing Paul Pogba this summer, but the Real Madrid board have been reluctant to support the manager unless unwanted players are offloaded.
Zidane also suggested there had been no deal agreed to sell James Rodriguez amid reports linking him with a move to rivals Atletico Madrid or Italian club Napoli.
