Gareth Bale could be used in a swap deal to land Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar, after Zinedine Zidane’s return to Real Madrid.

Zidane was confirmed the club’s manager for the second time in a three-year deal, 284 days after leaving his post in May.

Upon his return, speculation has been rife regarding what he will do with the team during the summer transfer window.

According to the Express, One player who could well be on the way out is Bale, as the Welsh winger has a rocky past with the Frenchman.

Bale sometime last month revealed he had not spoken to Zidane since the Champions League final.

“He did not talk to me about it – I still have not spoken to him since,” Bale revealed. Our relationship was good.

“I would not say we were best mates, it was just a normal professional relationship.”

With the club prepared to embark on another summer spending spree to bring in quality players, Brazilian star Neymar has been mooted to join the Spanish giants.

In a recent press conference, Florentino Perez jokingly mentioned the name of PSG teammate Kylian Mbappe as one of their prime targets as well.

Bale, on the other hand, has been linked to Man United but with the uncertainty surrounding their chances of playing Champions League football, the Welsh man may be in for a sensational swap deal with the Parisians.
