Hazard, Bale out of Madrid derby

Tottenham in talks to make last minute deal for Gareth Bale on Deadline Day

Tottenham in talks to make last minute deal for Gareth Bale on Deadline Day

The Times claims Spurs chairman Daniel Levy travelled to Madrid for talks with Madrid president Florentino Pérez in order to bring back the Wales worldwide to North London before the end of January. Another source close to the player insisted earlier this week that "nothing has changed" and he would not be leaving Real Madrid in January.

But Zidane said, "Gareth is here with us and I am counting on him".

Bale was left out of the squad to face Real Zaragoza in the Copa del Rey on Wednesday, having completed only one full training session following an ankle injury.

Head coach Zinedine Zidane had suggested Bale and Hazard could be involved in the match at the Santiago Bernabeu after some encouraging signs in training this week.

He risked the wrath of Real and Zidane fans as he celebrated Wales's qualification for the 2020 Eurocup by displaying a banner with his teammates that said: "Wales. All I want is for the players to be focused and prepared". "I am not contemplating this possibility", Zidane said.

Real Madrid could have a double fitness boost against Atletico Madrid with Eden Hazard and Gareth Bale possibly ready to be involved.

"All players are prepared and then we'll see what happens".

The Madrid Derby will take place in the 22 round of the Spanish championship (Real Madrid will play with Atletico Madrid at home).

We say that James is Brazilian too.

Hazard has not played since fracturing his foot against Paris Saint-Germain on November 26.

After overcoming a stuttering pre-season in which they lost 7-3 to Atletico, Real Madrid are top of La Liga with 46 points while Simeone's side are fifth with 36.
