REVEALED: Real Madrid stars Ronaldo and Bale not speaking to eachother

Real Madrid stars Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale are not on speaking terms, it has been revealed.

Diario Gol says the pair have not spoken since Real's Champions League success against Juventus ten days ago.

The flashpoint came when Ronaldo demanded more effort from Bale in second-leg, urging him to show more aggression. In the moment, the Welshman did not offer any protest, but he has not spoken to his teammate since.

Inside the Real locker room they're convinced Bale already has his mind beyond Madrid. The attacker's attitude has exasperated teammates, while coach Zinedine Zidane is now at his wit's end.

Indeed, Zidane now regards Marco Asensio, Lucas Vázquez and Isco Alarcón all ahead of Bale - with his reasoning based primarily on attitude and application.
