The Wales superstar picked up the problem in his right leg during training for the LaLiga giants,
It reports that medical tests on Monday revealed the problem and that it is a “long-term injury, for which no specific time off is specified.”
Bale suffered his latest setback during Real’s final training session at the Bernabeu on Saturday before their match against Celta Vigo the following day, which ended in a 5-2 victory.
Pictures emerged on Saturday of Bale limping onto Real’s team bus with strapping around his right thigh.
The former Tottenham favourite could not bend his leg as he stepped onto the vehicle.
The 32-year-old looked like he was trying to not aggravate the injury.
The timing could not be worse for Los Blancos, who have a hectic schedule before the next international break.
