Tottenham have agreed a loan deal with an option to buy with Real Madrid as Gareth Bale looks set for a classic homecoming.
The Welsh winger has struggled for first team action over the past few years with Los Blancos and desired a move away this summer.
Zidane has never been a fan of the pacy Welshman, even more so during his second tenure with the reigning LaLiga champions.
Links back to Premier League have been in the offing in recent weeks. With Man United and Tottenham believed to have made contact with Madrid over a purchase.

Jose Mourinho had previously tried to sign him way back in January, but the deal failed to materialize, and the Portuguese tactician has finally gotten his man.
A report from 90min suggests that the 31-year-old has agreed personal terms with Spurs, as he seems to make a return after seven years in Madrid.
One earlier setback to the agreement was Bale’s hefty £17m-per-season wage packet, which Tottenham were insistent that the Los Blancos should fund half of it.
These problems have been solved anyway, as Madrid have agreed to pay half of Gareth Bale’s salary throughout the duration of the loan, according to Daily Mail.

What’s more interesting is the fact that even if Gareth Bale was paid only half of his salary while on loan with Spurs, he would still be the highest paid player in Tottenham.
What helped make the move possible was Bale’s desire for regular first team action, as he looks to secure a spot in the Wales national team ahead of next summer’s European Championships.
Tottenham Hotspur have also agreed a €30m deal for Madrid’s fullback Sergio Reguilon, as Jose Mourinho looks to make major signings to help propel Spurs into the top four this season.
Tottenham Hotspur fans will be pleased to reunite with their former hero after seven years from his departure.
