Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane is furious with the continuing fallout from his side's Champions League quarter-final victory over Juventus, suggesting that people are annoyed at the club's phenomenal success.

The Madrid star was angered by Spanish radio and television presenter Juanma Castano describing the European champions' controversial elimination of Juve on Wednesday as "a scandal" and "a robbery", following a late penalty given in Lucas Vazquez's favour at the Santiago Bernabeu.

But Coleman, now in charge of struggling Championship side Sunderland, told BBC Sport: "How long has he been there?" Five years, has he? It's going to have to be another giant club.

"All right, he's done a good stint there, but the last time I spoke to him, he was very happy in Madrid, his family is settled there". There's nowhere bigger, so if he does leave Madrid, where's he going to go? Probably, maybe if he does move, if it's on the cards.

Big-spending Inter are the only club reported to now hold a serious interest in Bale and have been linked with a move ever since he scored a Champions League hat-trick against the Serie A side eight years ago.

Despite that, the Red Devils - and their various managers - have maintained their interest in signing the Welshman, with even Jose Mourinho publicly declaring his desire to sign him last summer.
