- Gareth Bale has not featured for Los Blancos in their last eight games
- The Welshman opted out of their Champions League game against Manchester City where they crashed out
- Bale has vowed to remain at Real Madrid to see-off his contract and earn another £60million
Gareth Bale has maintained that he will not leave Real Madrid as he hopes to see-off the remaining two years of his contract to see him earn another £60million.
The Welshman was spotted playing golf in Madrid after excluding himself from Real Madrid's tough Champions League encounter against Premier League side Manchester City.
Club manager Zinedine Zidane explained that the former Tottenham winger told him that he will not be available for the Champions League tie.
Bale has now missed Real Madrid's last eight games but he says he will stick to his guns and stay at the club as payback for failing to let him leave last summer.
The 31-year-old is reportedly furious that the club didn’t allow him complete his mega-switch to China in 2019.
Recall that Bale had agreed personal terms to join Chinese League side Jiangsu Suning in a staggering £1m-a-week tax free deal last summer.
The Welshman would have emerged the world's most paid player as the Asian club were willing to splash the cash.
The deal was called off at the 11th hour after Real asked for a transfer fee and that U-turn by the Spanish champions has led to Bale’s stubborn stance.
A close pal revealed as cited on SunSport: “Gareth will see out his last two years unless he not only gets a move he wants but his contract paid up.
“He has not forgiven Real for stopping him going to China. He’s a very determined character and is determined to stand up for his rights.
“If that means he stays at Real for the next two years and doesn’t get a game then that is what he is determined to do.
“He will only move to a club that he believes suits him and he will only do that if Real show him the respect he believes he has earned there.”
Bale’s wage can total up to £30million a year including bonuses.
