Gareth Bale has suffered another setback with Real Madrid confirming that the player wont be available for their Sunday game.
The Wales international wont be available for the club's big homecoming at their Santiago Bernabeu stadium after sustaining a muscular injury; the move coming after the player's perfect start of the season where he has started all three La Liga matches to date.
Bale is back in the Spanish capital following a season-long loan spell at Tottenham and his resurgence at the club was an unexpected redemption story after his spell appeared to be over.
Reports in Spain, according to the Mirror, suggest that he returned to the club this week from international duty in full fitness but that he subsequently began to suffer muscular discomfort in his right leg.
The 32-year-old netted 16 goals for Spurs during his loan stint at the North London club last season but has now returned to the Spanish giants.
Sunday’s clash for Madrid against Celta Vigo was their first match back at the Santiago Bernabeu in 559 days - a run dating back to early March 2020, before the Covid pandemic brought football across Europe to a halt.

Looks to be in some discomfort. Hopefully nothing too serious and can be back playing asap 🙌
