Why Gareth Bale was absent from Madrid's Squad
Gareth Bale pulled out from Real Madrid's trip to Bayern Munich for a pre-season tournament.
He was said to not being in the right mental state to play after Madrid's president, Florentino Perez prevented him from joining Jiangsu Suning.
Gareth Bale has only three years left on his contract with the Bernabeu club where he has a record of winning four Champions Leagues, one La Liga title, a Copa del Rey, three UEFA Super cups and three Club World Cups.
Madrid's boss, Zinedine Zidane disclosed that Bale was very close to leaving the Club having fallen out of favour.
