Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has already made his decision to sell forward Gareth Bale this summer, report Diario AS.

The Spanish media have criticised the Welshman for his performance against Levante last week and refusal to celebrate his goal from the penalty spot with teammates.

Teammate Thibaut Courtois criticised Bale for not attending team dinners while former Madrid and Wales boss John Toshack, who claimed Bale needed to learn the Spanish language to ‘show respect’ to the fans.

His apparent introverted character has not endeared him to Spanish media and fans, which is said to be behind the decision to accelerate an exit.

Bale joined Madrid from Tottenham in the summer of 2013 and has won four Champions League titles with the club.
