Real Madrid are currently in the middle of offloading Gareth Bale to Tottenham Hotspur. The Welshman has reached the point of no return at Los Blancos and both the player and the club are ready to move on.

The Welshman is currently on £600,000-a-week so finding a suitor will be hard this summer with Tottenham Hotspur the latest club interested if Real Madrid shares the load of the players' wages.

Meanwhile, Marca have reported the Spanish giants are happy to phase him out of the club when it comes to advertising, and they've already started to do so.

For starters, in the official club shop, every member of the first team squad has their shirt on display - except for Bale.

The shirts on display will jump from number 10 (Luka Modric) to number 12 (Marcelo), Bale's number 11 missing. Moreover, Bale hasn't featured on any jersey promotion video or photo-shoot for Madrid's new jersey for the season.

What more? The Welshman will not be training at Real Madrid ahead of the season. Training footage from the club has no signs of Bale being involved.

And now, Jose Mourinho is finally getting his wish of having Bale in his team after failing to land him when he was Manchester United's manager.
