GARETH BALE IS facing up to a month on the sidelines after Real Madrid confirmed another injury setback for the Wales global.

He is likely to be available for the Madrid derby against Atletico after the global break.

The new injury will increase speculation that he could be sold by Real Madrid, who could use his fee to reinvest in new recruits.

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

"He's having a hard time". With Real Madrid struggling this season - they trail Barcelona by eight points already - his return was seen as crucial to helping them turn things around.

On November 8, Flynn published an op-ed piece in The Hill that called Gulen "a shady Islamic mullah" and a "radical Islamist". But by mid-December Trump had named Flynn national security adviser and he was playing a central role in the transition.

Bale, 28, has only made nine appearances in all competitions this season, and was expected to face Atletico, until a setback in training.

In his absence over the past year, home favourites Isco and Marco Asensio have starred and it would cause serious disquiet in the stands and the dressing room at the Bernabeu if they were to be squeezed out to make room for Bale when fit.

The potential of former Tottenham Hotspur winger Gareth Bale always seems to remain unfulfilled at Real Madrid. 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.

It is not just an issue that has affected Bale just this year.
