Real Madrid Send Zinedine Zidane to Scout Tottenham Winger Gareth Bale

White Hart Lane star on Bernabeu radar.

Real Madrid have handed former French international Zinedine Zidane a watching brief as the La Liga giants continue to track Tottenham winger Gareth Bale.

Italian source TuttoMercato claim that Zidane, who now works as a coach at Real Madrid, was in attendance at Stade Gerland last night as Tottenham overcame Lyon in their Europa League last 32 tie.

The 23 year old Welsh international is perhaps one of the most sought after players in Europe right now and Tottenham may struggle to keep hold of the former Southampton man, especially if Andre Villa-Boas’s side fail to secure a Champions League berth for next term.

The interest from Real Madrid will surely interest Bale and the fact that a player of Zidane’s status has been handed the job of scouting the Tottenham attacker may well help the Spanish side win any potential race to sign the wide-attacker.

Bale has scored 16 goals thus far this season and provided six assists in all competitions.
