- Gareth Bale is considering remaining at the Bernabeu
- The Welshman is said to be willing to settle differences with manager Zinedine Zidane
- Bale has been linked with a move away from the Spanish capital
Gareth Bale may not be leaving the Santiago Bernabeu any time soon after reports say the player is ready to put aside his bust up with team manager Zinedine Zidane, SunSport reports.
The Welshman has been heavily linked with a move to top Premier League clubs including Manchester United, Chelsea and Everton.
Last summer Zidane claimed that the former Tottenham star was close to leaving the club and his new club would be announced.

Latest reports by the Mirror says Bale is now considering a U-turn and ready to settle all differences with the team manager in a bid to fight for his spot in the first team.
The 30-year-old whose current contract runs until the summer of 2022 earns a whopping £600,000-per-week.
It was gathered that Bale is now hoping to see out the remaining part of his contract with the La Liga giants.
He has managed two goals and two assists this season and has had a very limited time on the pitch.
He was on the score sheet in two separate Champions League finals since he made the £86million move to Spain from Spurs in 2013, but has faded recently.
The player was on the verge of leaving the club last summer before Los Blancos handed him a lifeline by cancelling his imminent move to China.
The Welshman was heavily linked with a £1 million-a-week move to join Chinese topflight side Jiangsu Suning on a three-year deal - which will see him become world's most paid player.
It is believed that Los Blancos’ disappointing 7-3 defeat to city rivals Atletico Madrid in an international pre-season friendly was responsible for the sudden decision to keep the winger.
However, Legit.ng earlier reported that Real are in desperate bid to see-off at least twelve first team players when the transfer window opens this summer as Gareth Bale and Luka Modric could be affected, SunSport reports.
La Liga clubs are only allowed to have a maximum of 25 players, but a total of 37 players currently make up first team of Los Blancos with twelve of them out on loan.
Team manager Zinedine Zidane now has no choice but to get rid of at least twelve of them when the transfer window is open as reports also say James Rodriguez could be affected.
