In a season full of all types of disappointments, we should also celebrate the small positive moments and this definitely was one of them as we slowly look forward to the upcoming season with changes to the squad that will be fully lead by Zidane.

"He is playing better than I have ever seen, since I returned to the club", said Zidane.

MADRID, SPAIN - APRIL 21: Karim Benzema of Real Madrid celebrates with Carlos Casemiro (left 2), Toni Kroos (L) and Lucas Vazquez (right 2) after scoring a goal during La Liga match between Real Madrid and Athletic Bilbao at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium in Madrid, Spain on April 21, 2019.

Athletic still had an outside chance of making the Champions League places coming into kick-off and it was a scrappy first half with plenty of fouls, but little free-flowing play.

PAUL POGBA and David de Gea are pushing for massive pay rises amid fears they could be hit in the pocket if Manchester United fail to qualify for next season's Champions League. With second balls, set-pieces, aerial challenges, we were very focused today.

"Then with our quality, we we showed some good things".

Gareth Bale was again whistled during a substitute appearance.

In all competitions, the 31-year-old has contributed to 40 goals in 2018/19, scoring 30 and assisting a further 10.

He has refused to talk about his future until the current campaign is over but Dixon believes Hazard is off.

Asked if he understood why Bale was the subject of boos from the home fans, while other out of form players were not, he replied: "No, I don't understand that".

However, his salary makes it nearly impossible for a club to buy him on Madrid's terms.

"I was staying at the Chelsea hotel last night". Whether you play or not is just part of the season and of being a footballer, but I have never stopped working or helping my teammates. He's either the best player or the worst player.

However, former Chelsea FC winger Nevin has claimed that his sources have suggested that Hazard isn't close to signing a deal to secure a move to Real Madrid.
