Gareth Bale's time at the Bernabeu looks to be all but over as club president Florentino Perez has 'run out of patience' with the Welshman.
The former Tottenham Hotspur winger has had an underwhelming campaign in the capital city, scoring a meagre 13 goals and featuring only intermittently under manager Santiago Solari.
Perez had high hopes for Bale this season, expecting the former Spurs wideman to step up to the mark following the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo.
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has reportedly ran out of patience with Gareth Bale
Bale has made 20 La Liga appearances this season, but only featuring for 1250 minutes
But according to Spanish outlet AS, Bale has failed to meet Perez's expectations and he has now ran out of patience with the £86million signing - and AS suggest he won't back down having now decided upon terminating the Welshman's Bernabeu stay.
The 29-year-old has been linked with Manchester United in the past. In 2017, AS cite an attempt to offload the Welshman to Old Trafford in an attempt to free up some capital in order to acquire Kylian Mbappe from Monaco.
Bale refused to budge and despite another season peppered by persistent injuries, he went on to score twice from the bench in the Champions League final against Liverpool.
