But his comments after the game were his clearest warning yet to Zinedine Zidane.

Bale, 28, said: “I need to be playing week in, week out, and that’s not happened this season.

“I had an injury five, six weeks into the season but I’ve been fit ever since.

“I have to sit down with my agent in the summer and discuss it.”

But bringing in Bale would be a huge boost for United – especially after last night’s heroics.
