Cristiano Ronaldo swapped Real Madrid for Juventus in the summer - and reports claim the La Liga giants regret selling the 33-year-old due to their anger with Gareth Bale.
Ronaldo called time on his Real Madrid career back in July, swapping Spain for Italy via Juventus in a £105million transfer.
Los Blancos are struggling without their talisman, though, with the club currently stuck in a rut under Julen Lopetegui.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s exit has seen Real Madrid’s attack falter, with the La Liga side currently without a win or goal from their last four matches.
Bale was entrusted with the task of succeeding the Portugal international as club talisman.
However, Spanish radio station Telemadrid say they are fed up with the Wales international.
It is claimed that they feel the 29-year-old always thinks inwards and puts himself before the interests of the club.
Bale is currently on international duty with Wales.
And it is his decision to try and play for his country that has reportedly angered Real Madrid insiders.
It is claimed they feel Bale was wrong to travel back home due to recent injury setbacks.
Bale was forced out of their Champions League defeat to CSKA Moscow last week due to discomfort.
And he also limped out of their 1-0 loss to Alaves at the weekend.
Telemadrid claim Real feel Bale has not done enough to replace Ronaldo as team leader.
And they also feel that he remains distant from the rest of the squad due to his failure to learn Spanish.
Bale was heavily linked with a move to Manchester United in the summer.
But he is said to still retain the full support of club president Florentino Perez.
Perez gambled on landing Bale from Tottenham in 2013 and, as a result, will force the club to stand by their man.
