Ex-Real Madrid player Predrag Mijatović has expressed his views on some of the current affairs of Real Madrid. The hero of Real Madrid’s Champions League win in 1998 thinks Gareth Bale will create problems for himself but not Real Madrid if he decides to stay. In an interview with Cadena SER, he said,

“If [Bale] stays, Madrid won’t have any problems, the one who is going to have problems is Bale. He isn’t in Zidane‘s plans.”

Mijatovic also talked about Luka Modric as the Croatian was linked with Neymar’s transfer rumors earlier. He said,

“He’s very happy at Real Madrid and, as a friend, I can say that he’s going to stay, Luka cannot be put in any deal, he’s the [reigning] Ballon d’Or.”

Finally, he also seemed optimistic about Madrid’s campaign in 2019-20 despite a difficult pre-season. His words:

“I believe that Zidane is going to use the system with three centre-backs fairly regularly. Madrid will compete, gradually improving. However, the pre-season has been a little weird.”
