Gareth Bale endured a night to forget on Wednesday as Real Madrid were knocked out of the Champions League at the semi-final stage by Juventus.
The Welshman missed a number of chances during the 1-1 draw, which will only serve to heighten the ill feeling between him and Madrid supporters.
We asked our Twitter followers for their thoughts on whether or not Bale will be forced out of Madrid:
@PeoplesPerson_ don’t think so. He’s a Perez signing, until he stays Bale also stays.

@PeoplesPerson_ Real won’t let him go. But if Bale leaves, it will be merely because of the fans and how they’ve treated him. Disgraceful.

@PeoplesPerson_ if i got attacked with a hammer i would leave

@PeoplesPerson_ They’ve dumped all the blame on him, and could replace him with Reus if they wanted to.

@PeoplesPerson_ i think they unrealistically expected Ronaldo mk II. Will leave, but not this Summer. One more season under Zidane.

@PeoplesPerson_ No, lad is still young and promising. Gareth is an expensive player, Madrid won’t let him leave as easy as that

@PeoplesPerson_ Not a chance: 1) Perez is basically admitting he’s failed by selling him which damages his credentials 2)Still a top payer

It would be highly unlikely for Madrid to let Bale go so soon after making him the world’s most expensive player.
However, the Spanish club have shown they are far from predictable when it comes to the transfer market.
After all, they sold Angel di Maria to Man United the summer after he had put in a match-winning performance in the Champions League final. If Bale were to come to Old Trafford, there would be no doubt whatsoever that he would be treated much better by United supporters.
