Bale has once again come under criticism after his performance last night as Madrid crashed out of the Champions League in their semi-final clash with Juventus.
According to Express Sport, a close family member has said Bale likes the idea of linking up with Louis Van Gaal and a move back to England.
The former Tottenham Hotspur star has found playing for Los Blancos cut-throat business and he has been criticised for most of the season by fans and Spanish media alike for below-par performances.

The criticism seems harsh on Bale, who has taken the brunt of Madrid’s poor form. He has netted 13 league goals but it is the chances he has missed which have caused the uproar. His shot accuracy is just 46%, according to Squawka.
If a move goes through it will be one of the most sensational transfer sagas of all-time, with Madrid set to recoup almost the full amount they spent when breaking the world-record transfer fee just two seasons ago, when Bale joined from Spurs.
