Gareth Bale dropped out of the squad despite returning to training and struggled to ever play for Real Madrid again

GARETH BALE has been dropped from Real Madrid’s squad for tomorrow’s La Liga clash with Cadiz.

The Welshman returned to training this week after shaking off a recent back injury.

But he won’t be back in action tomorrow after being left out of Carlo Ancelotti’s matchday squad.

Bale, 32, is set to leave Madrid at the end of the season after his £600,000-a-week contract expired.

He will only have two more opportunities to add to his 258 games in Madrid and play again for the Spanish giants.

Ancelotti’s men host Real Betis in their final LaLiga game of the season next weekend.

They then travel to the Stade de France to face Liverpool in the Champions League final.

Bale tormented the Reds in the 2018 final – coming off the bench and scoring twice as Madrid won 3-1.

After this year’s flagship event, Bale will join Wales in preparing for the World Cup play-off final against Scotland or Ukraine.

The Dragons skipper is hoping to be fresh for his country despite making just seven appearances for his club this season.


His last Madrid goal came in August.

Ancelotti was forced to defend Bale after the striker missed the club’s La Liga title party on April 30.

Spanish media labeled a Bale tweet – apologizing for missing the title celebrations – as an “ugly gesture”.

The former Spurs star was also criticized for missing the celebrations following Real’s spectacular Champions League semi-final win over Manchester City.

Bale has been linked with a shock move to hometown club Cardiff in the summer.
