Gareth Bale returned to Real Madrid with a knee injury after representing Wales in the Nations League and reports claim the Spanish giants want to kick him out.
The 31-year-old played in the Dragons 1-0 win over Finland and Bulgaria respectively after he was limited to just 100 minutes of action by Zinedine Zidane since the lockdown.
Bale played 45 minutes away at Finland and featured in the entire duration against Bulgaria at the Millenium Stadium in Cardiff three days later.
According to Spanish news media outlet Deportes Cuatro, the former Tottenham attacker returned to camp with a knee injury, but did not meet with Zidane.
Bale then joined the likes of Marco Asensio, Isco, Mariano and Sergio Reguilon in the gym, who were all understood to be nursing respective injuries.
The reports added that Los Blancos are looking to offload the Welshman as they see his commitment to his native country is now his priority.
Bale's contract at the Bernabeu will expire in the summer of 2022 and the four-time Champions League winner claims he is ready to leave the club if they let him go.
"There have been other times where we tried to leave, but the club did not allow it to happen.
"The club has control of everything. It is in their hands, but they make things very difficult to be honest. The decision is in the hands of Real Madrid," he told Sky Sports.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Gareth Bale looks liberated as he wears a new look despite going through trying times at Real Madrid under Zinedine Zidane.
The Wales international wore long hair while training with his national teammates ahead of their Nations League preparations.
The Los Blancos winger was spotted chatting with his colleagues as well as showing off his flowing locks despite his row with Zidane in the past season.
