Gareth Bale will remain at Real Madrid after this summer after the Spanish giants admitted they would not be able to download the Welshman in the coming months.
Bale has not yet met his real colleagues for the season as he is currently on holiday following his Euro 2020 campaign with Wales, but he is expected to return to the club on July 23.
Los Blancos had hoped that the striker’s performance at this summer’s European Championships would be enough to tempt a buyer to make an offer for Bale, but without any forthcoming Mundo Deportivo reports that the club have now accepted that they must “tolerate” him.
The former Tottenham man got off to a brilliant start in his time at the Santiago Bernabeu – played a key role in Real’s extraordinary feat of scoring four Champions League titles in five years – but his relationship with the club and fans has soured in recent seasons.
After falling out with dissatisfaction with former manager Zinedine Zidane towards the end of the 2019/20 campaign, Bale was sent out on loan to the former club Spurs when he looked to regain match fitness before Euro 2020.
Although he showed glimpses of his class, the Welshman could not show off his wonderful talent on a consistent basis and the new boss Nuno Espirito Santo has now ruled out a permanent move for Bale.
The reappointed Real boss Carlo Ancelotti has already admitted that Bale will be part of his plans for next season, although it seems that such a statement has only been made on the back of Real’s inability to find a buyer, rather than Ancelotti’s wish. to keep him.
As one of the club’s best servants, Bale’s presence in the La Liga giants also hinders their quest for Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe.

The Frenchman understands that he wants to move to Madrid, but Real’s ongoing financial misery means that they are not able to stump up the huge amount of money required to sign him – financial misery that would undoubtedly be eased by the sale of Bale.
But at the moment it seems that he is not going anywhere, and Real have been forced to accept that they have to wait until his contract expires next summer to move him from their salary costs.
