After further tests, Madrid have released a statement revealing the extent of his problem, but stopped short of confirming his length of absence.
“After tests on Gareth Bale at the University Hospital Sanitas La Moraleja, the player has been diagnosed with a muscle injury in the soleus of the right leg. The severity of the injury will depends how it evolves.”
The injury couldn’t have come at a worse time for Bale, with the forward enjoying some of his finest form since joining the club in 2013.
The 26-year-old has scored five goals in his last three games, meaning he has found the back of the net 15 times for club and country so far this season.
