Real Madrid star forward, Gareth Bale, suffered a rather surprising snub from manager, Zinedine Zidane after his Champions League wonder goal.

The Sun reports that the duo did not speak to his match winner for over 'three hours' after the 3-1 final win over Liverpool.

And according to the same report by Sun, Manchester United could move in for Bale, who would cost upwards of £200m plus £650,000 a week in wages.

Zidane left Bale on the bench for an hour, with the Welshman netting his wonder goal 122 seconds after coming on.

But when he was asked his Madrid boss had said anything in the three hours after the final whistle in Kiev, Bale shook his head.

Asked to confirm whether Zidane had spoken, Bale gave a firm: "No."

It illustrates the massive problem between the two, with Spanish midfielder Isco being preferred for the final.

Now it is up to Real president Florentino Perez to persuade Zidane they should keep the 28-year-old superstar.

United have previously tried to sign Bale, who has now won four Champions League titles in five years with Madrid.
