Zinedine Zidane is hoping that Gareth Bale can stay fit for the season, as he wants a big year for the forward and Madrid.
Real Madrid enjoyed a successful 2016-17 season, but Bale missed most of that with injury.
Reports have it Madrid are looking looking to sell him and bring in Mbappe, but Zidane seems to have big plans for him.
“[Bale is] good, training well and that’s the most important thing,” he told a pre-match news conference ahead of facing Deportivo la Coruna.
“He had few chances last year with four months of injury, now he’s well, he’s enjoyed very good preparation and I hope it’s an important year for him and for us.”
