Former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon says Zinedine Zidane quit as coach over a disagreement regarding who was in control of transfers.

Calderon says the Frenchman walked because he wanted Gareth Bale sold instead of Cristiano Ronaldo, but president Florentino Perez had other ideas.

"Zidane made it very clear when he decided to leave the club,"he told Bleacher Report.



"He insisted on keeping Cristiano and transferring Bale, and the president did completely the opposite.

Calderon added that: "The point with Cristiano was not only that he scored 50 goals per season but also that he was a leader.

"Zidane also wanted to sign some players and transfer others -- apart from Bale -- but he didn't get [his wishes], so he decided to leave.

"For me, that is the main problem -- not only the loss of his goals but Cristiano's behaviour, his attitude."
