Real Madrid's Gareth Bale suffers another injury setback

Real Madrid's injury-prone star Gareth Bale suffered a new leg injury on Friday, adding to the frustrations of the Welsh winger who has already been sidelined with a calf strain for five weeks.

Madrid's next match is a tough visit to crosstown rival Atletico Madrid on November 18 after the global break.

Real are eight points behind La Liga rivals Barcelona but Zidane is hopeful the possibility of having Bale, Benzema and Ronaldo available after the global break can aid their bid to retain the Spanish title.

Indeed, including Bale's bumper salary, AS believe his 159 games for the club have cost Madrid 1.06 million euros a match.

Adding to the confusion, she said she was under the impression Canada had withdrawn from negotiations. However, the Prime Minister's Office insisted that Canada was not the only country to raise concerns.

His highs include Real's crucial second goal to see off Atletico Madrid in the 2014 Champions League final, netting from the spot in a nervous penalty shootout against the same opponents in the final two years later, and a memorable solo run and finish to beat Barcelona in the 2014 Copa del Rey final.

The 28-year-old, who has been restricted to just nine appearances in all competitions this season, was in line to return to Madrid's line-up ahead of next week's La Liga derby against Atletico Madrid until picking up the injury. There was once a time when the trio of Bale, Karim Benzema, and Cristiano Ronaldo were thought of as the most potent trio in world football.

The Welsh worldwide resumed team workouts at the end of last week after recovering from an injury suffered during the Blancos' 3-1 Champions League away win over Borussia Dortmund on September 26, reports Efe.
