Real Madrid News Manchester United target Marco Asensio could force Bernabeu exit

Gareth Bale faces spending the rest of 2017 on the treatment table after tearing his adductor muscle in training on Thursday.

The 28-year-old forward also missed Wales' final two World Cup qualifiers last month as they failed to qualify for next year's tournament in Russian Federation.

Real Madrid striker and Manchester United target Marco Asensio would be open to listening to offers from other clubs if he is dropped for Gareth Bale this season, according to reports.

These injuries have prevented him from realizing his potential as well as cementing his place at Madrid as a "Galactico". However, he has remained at Madrid and has continued to enjoy great success in the UEFA Champions League.

The 28-year-old, who has been restricted to just nine appearances in all competitions this season, was in line to return to Madrid's line-up ahead of next week's La Liga derby against Atletico Madrid until picking up the injury.

Speaking to the media ahead of Spain's global friendly against Costa Rica, Isco spoke about his teammate's struggles.

For now, Gareth Bale will have to deal with sitting on the sidelines yet again.

He was sent for tests and the club have diagnosed him with a fibrillar rupture in the middle third of the adductor longus muscle.

"He's having a hard time".
