Manchester City have cleared the way for Manchester United to revive their interest in Gareth Bale as the Premier League champions are not interested in signing the Welshman. "I want to be playing every week".
Madrid has arguably the best-assembled squad in world football, with superior quality players in all areas of the pitch. It's even worse as we all felt that we could have beaten Real Madrid and we were in the game for a long time ...
Bale has not given up hope of mending his relationship with Zidane and his first choice is still to stay at Real, but only if he is offered firm assurances regarding a more prominent role next season. "I haven't been playing as much as I would like and I'm going to have to sit down with everybody at a big table in the summer and seriously consider what I'm going to do next".
"The only thing I told him is that there is a reason we got to this final, and why we played in this final, so think about that".
"I was obviously very disappointed not to start the game", he said.
He added "your love and support will give me the strength I need". Today I lost my team the game and I feel sorry for everyone.
Bale was left out of the starting XI by Real manager Zinedine Zidane despite scoring five goals in his previous five matches since regaining his form following an ankle injury. Let us know in the comments section below.
"It doesn't really bother me to be honest".
'My Liverpool boys fought hard and I'm proud of them. I mean a deal as in 'look, we'll do you a favour here, but we want first option on Kane in a year or two.' So there's some sort of agreement that they get the first option on Harry Kane.
"What can I say?" he said over the supporters' cheers.
Meanwhile, Brazilian striker Neymar says he's not yet completely game-ready after the injury that has kept him off the pitch for almost three months, but believes there is still enough time for him to fully recover before the World Cup.
