Gareth Bale's departure from Real Madrid is likely to be frustrated by the club's reluctance to pay off the remaining two years of his salary.
Bale's €17million (£15.1m) salary over his remaining two years would mean Madrid would have to negotiate a possible €34m (£30.2m) payoff which they are not in a position to do.
Marca suggested a meeting between Bale's representatives Stellar Group has already been set up but Sportsmail understands there is still no imminent meeting planned.
The coming together will not be instigated by Bale whose agent Jonathan Barnett has repeated the player's intention to honour the two years remaining in his contract.
