Despite deciding to stay in Spain, the Welshman has now changed plans.
Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale remains keen on leaving the club in January as he feels he has been made a scapegoat by Zinedine Zidane.
Welsh international Gareth Bale was on the brink of joining Chinese Super League club Jiangsu Suning last summer but the move collapsed.
Zidane had made it clear that Bale had no future at Real Madrid, but injuries to the likes of Marco Asensio and Lucas Vazquez have handed the 30-year-old a reprieve in the Spanish capital. Bale had forced his way back into the starting XI but he was left out of the club’s 2-2 draw with Club Brugge last Tuesday with the coach insisting privately to the former Spurs ace that he was resting him.
However, Zidane told the Spanish press that Bale was injured and the Welshman was furious. Supporters were then angered by a perceived lack of care from Bale as he was seen taking his seat at the Bernabeu close to five minutes after kick-off.
It has left Bale seeking an exit in January, according to The Times, but the Welshman may find options are thin on the ground. He earns around £360,000-a-week after tax in the Spanish capital and there are few clubs in the world that can meet his wage demands.
