Real Madrid plan to loan out unpopular Bale

Paul Pogba is closer to joining Real Madrid

The Dutchman does not exactly see eye-to-eye with Los Blancos, and they fear Raiola would demand a sizeable sum for his role in any potential deal.

Bilbao were struggling to find time and space, but they did just that seconds later when Inaki Williams broke down the right and sent in a risky cross which goalkeeper Keylor Navas had to claim before Inigo Cordoba could do any damage.

Skipper Iker Muniain said: 'In the first half it was very equal, We had the odd chance that we weren't able to finish off, and then in the second half we were close to scoring, but we didn't score and they hit us on the break. Bale has been a substitute in recent games and was once again whistled by home fans during Sunday's win over Athletic Club. The former Tottenham man won the corner which led to Benzema's second goal and laid the ball off for the 31-year-old's third.

The forward has gone on to score 222 goals in 462 outings for Madrid in all competitions, averaging a goal every 2.08 games. "Bringing another striker is the club's decision, I don't mind if there is another striker, I concentrate on the field, in what I can do to help my team", he added. The Whites are looking to woo the Frenchman into joining the club by using Zinedine Zidane's re-arrival at the managerial helm as bait, while the coach is also open to the prospect of uniting with his compatriot in Spain.

"He is one of the leaders of this team".

The attacker has regularly been linked with a move to Real Madrid and previously admitted that he would like to play for the La Liga giants. I walked out of Chelsea on the way here this morning and I met somebody who I won't name at the club. "Everything that's happened this season hasn't affected me at all", he said.

There are suggestions that the West London outfit Chelsea can still finish in the top four of the English Premier League as they play their fixtures against Burnley later on Monday.
