It's said "any decision about his Real Madrid future will be taken next summer, rather than in the heat of a frustrating moment".
Bale has scored 70 goals in 159 appearances for Madrid, helping the club to three Champions League crowns, one La Liga title and one Copa del Rey.
The Welshman will not be able to play for the rest of the year.
"If he is happy in Madrid then fine, if he is not then he needs to go and play somewhere where he is happy".
And while that gap was bridged by the emergence of a wonderful Marco Asensio, and the blistering form of Isco, it's now starting to show. With a player like Gareth, they've got a real asset when he's fit, but he's also a depreciating asset due to his current injuries, so Real wouldn't get anywhere the money they should for him.
However, it feels like the start of the end for Gareth Bale at Real Madrid and patience is certainly wearing thin.

While many people have no symptoms, it can cause serious pneumonia and prove unsafe to those with lung or immune system problems. More disinfection and testing measures were followed before bringing the towers back into service on November 5.
Paper Round's view: Given Bale has put his body through the extreme stresses of professional football, and done so with an emphasis on his power and speed as much as with his technique, 28 is a relatively old age in football terms.
This season started well for Bale, but after the match in Dortmund on September 26, he has not played since. Instead of hitting his peak, he is going backwards and that's solely down to his injury problems.
Supporters will hope that they can serve as the main beneficiaries of this latest episode of ruthless evolution at the Bernabeu.
It appears that this latest setback is the last straw for the Spanish champions, who may be getting ready to sell the Welsh winger.
According to Daily Mirror, Manchester United have continued to monitor the winger's situation in Spain.
In the beginning of 2016, Bale's calf muscle problem reappeared and he went out for eight matches. It's harsh to criticise players for picking up injuries I think.
