Real Madrid's players are reportedly relieved to see the back of Gareth Bale as the forward closes in on a loan return to former club Tottenham Hotspur.
Bale arrived in London on Friday afternoon to finalise terms of a deal that will keep him at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium until the end of 2020-21.
The Wales international fell out of favour at Madrid under Zinedine Zidane and is said to have cut a lonely figure in the dressing room.
Spanish outlet AS claims that Bale did not say goodbye to any of his teammates as he collected his belongings before flying to Britain.
The same report indicates that sections of the squad are glad the saga is now over, with the 31-year-old often making headlines last season even when not playing.
