The 31-year-old winger sustained a knee injury during Sunday’s Nations League victory over Bulgaria – but the issue is believed to be less serious than first feared.
Gareth Bale expects to return to fitness before the transfer window shuts boosting his hopes of a potential escape route from Real Madrid
Bale returned from international duty with Wales with a knee injury after starting both victories over Finland and Bulgaria.
He is now rehabilitating his injury at Madrid where he is being assessed.
But Mirror Sport understands Bale, 31, believes the injury is not too serious.
He went down in the second half of Sunday’s 1-0 win over Bulgaria but completed the 90 minutes.
He has since returned to the La Liga champions where boss Zinedine Zidane didn’t use him in Real’s last eight games.
Bale has admitted he is open to leaving after almost going to Chinese Super League club Jiangsu Suning a year ago.
The ex-Spurs ace still has two years left on his contract worth over £600,000-a-week.
But Bale has admitted he would consider his options this window, including any potential switches back to the Premier League.
