Zidane on Bale's future at Real Madrid - 'We will see'

Eden Hazard will reportedly agree a deal to leave Chelsea to join Real Madrid within the next few days.

"We will see", he said.

When asked - again - if Bale will be at the club next season, Zidane told reporters: "We'll see".

'The supporters know that the season is over.

Since Zinedine Zidane's return to the dugout at the Santiago Bernabeu, Benzema has only failed to score in one game - against Celta Vigo - and has four goals in his last four games.

Madrid moved on to 60 points after 31 games thanks to the victory but remain third in the standings, 10 points behind leaders Barcelona who host nearest challengers Atletico Madrid in a top-of-the-table clash later on Saturday.

The Wales worldwide, who has often endured a trying relationship with the Madrid faithful during his time in the Spanish capital, was jeered during the match and Zidane hardly made an impassioned defence of his player afterwards. In came Nacho, Federico Valverde, Isco and Bale.

The scattering of whistles became a chorus after he dragged a shot wide from 25 yards and it was no surprise his confidence drained away, a poor touch following shortly after.

The home side were eventually level in the 59th minute when Marco Asensio's cross found Benzema, who nodded home from close-range.

Benzema has only managed more goals in a single season twice since joining Los Blancos in 2010, where he also scored 26 in his debut campaign.

He should have completed his hat-trick towards the end but missed two sitters, while a post denied him from scoring again in added time, though it did not impact the result. The treble was not to be.
