- Gareth Bale is reportedly 'angry' and wants to leave Real Madrid claims BBC's Guillem Balague
- The Welshman switch to Chinese Super League side Jiangsu Suning was cancelled by Los Blancos in the last minute
- Bale has over 100 goals at Real Madrid and has won four Champions Leagues, one La Liga title, among other awards
Gareth Bale, Real Madrid forward, is unhappy and tired with life at Santiago Bernabéu and wants to quit the Spanish giants claims BBC Radio 5 Live's Guillem Balague.
The Welshman was set to seal a switch to Chinese Super League side Jiangsu Suning on a three-year deal during the summer window – with a reported fee of £1m a week - but Los Blancos opted out in the last minute as they wanted a transfer fee.
Interestingly, Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane said in July, “we hope he leaves soon", a statement Bale's agent Jonathan Barnett did not waste time in responding to.
"Zidane is a disgrace - he shows no respect for a player that has done so much for Real Madrid."
At the last count, the former Tottenham ace has won four Champions Leagues with the Galaticos, one La Liga title, a Copa del Rey and three Uefa Super Cups and Club World Cups as well as netting over 100 goals.
However, since the start of the new season after the collapse of China switch, Bale has netted two times for Real team in seven matches to see them at the summit of La Liga.
Bale was also missing in action during Los Blancos 2-2 draw against Club Bruges in last week's Champions League clash before playing a part in the 4-2 win against Granada on Saturday.
"Gareth Bale is fed up," noted Balague. "He can do this no longer. At a time when he began to stand out, knowing that as he plays matches his fitness would be sharpened, he suddenly had to watch the game against Bruges in the stands. Nobody knows why.
"He is angry, confused. When Zidane returned to the club, he decided he did not want Bale, without anyone having offered a clear reasoning.
"Bale was told that Zidane, with whom he has a professional relationship, had made an unequivocal decision and was preparing for his departure.
"His agent, Jonathan Barnett, set out to find him alternative options, but Bale preferred - ahead of any other possibility - to remain at the club.
"What the Welshman does not quite understand is why the doors were opened, and then they did not let him go. Madrid agreed not to charge a transfer fee to the Chinese side Jiangsu Suning, but ultimately they backed down because they believed that another Chinese team were willing to pay a large amount for James Rodriguez, a rumour that ended up being false.
"Bale has played well in recent weeks - partly because he is angry - in response to the distance and coldness with which the coach treats him, and he has finally rebelled at his situation.
"It is said that he likes golf more than football, and it is true that he does not live the profession with the intensity of others, either on or off the pitch.
"He only asks for minutes to be able to give his best and to be able to offer goals to the team, something they lack.
"Leaving him out of the game against Bruges is difficult to understand, and has been the last straw.
"For the first time since he arrived at Real Madrid in the summer of 2013, the Welshman wants to leave. He feels that it is not fair what is being done with him."
