There is a chance that Bale does leave this summer and he would have no shortage of suitors looking for him, especially in the Premiership as Manchester United have always been linked with a move for him ever since he was at Tottenham.
It's because he's in the coach's plans and the club's plans, because he also has that motivation to continue at Real Madrid.
According to the Express, Real President Florentino Perez would be willing to sell Bale for £90 million. A lack of match fitness meant that Bale was unable to start the game but it didn't matter that he was not playing anyway as Madrid didn't need on the pitch.

Just 15 days ago, Manchester United Manager Jose Mourinho shot down the idea of acquiring Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale, saying that the Welshman was never a transfer target.
Meanwhile, Man United will be missing central defenders Eric Bailly and Phil Jones, due to suspension, opening up a place in the starting lineup for new recruit Victor Lindelof. Under David Moyes and Louis van Gaal in recent years, the club have been unable to attract the best players but under Jose, the tide is changing as the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Romelu Lukaku have called the Theatre of Dreams home in the past 12 months and now. "We're concentrated in what we're doing".
Geoffrey Kondogbia has asked to leave Inter and is expected to attract Premier League interest. Toward the end of last season, Isco played extremely well in Bale's absence and started over him in the Champions League final, which was played in Bale's native Wales.
He will reportedly be benched for Sunday's Supercopa final against Barcelona, with Marcos Asensio or Isco favoured.
The players will now be used to his methods and know exactly what he wants from them, while the new arrivals should allow them to get to the level Mourinho requires. "I can truly say that I gave more to Real Madrid any club than I ever have before".
This will be his first competitive meeting with the Spanish giants since an acrimonious split in 2013.
