Gareth Bale hesitated holding Real Madrid’s flag during a team photo before the game vs PSG. Instead, he chose to hand it to Dani Carvajal.
Gareth Bale’s future at Real Madrid was the subject of much debate this summer. The club had made it pretty clear that they desired to see his back and for a moment it looked like they would get what they wanted when China came calling.
Bale didn’t seem too upset the potential move as he was seen smiling on various occasions during Real Madrid’s thrashing at the hands of Atletico Madrid in the pre-season. However, a last-minute want to get a transfer fee of the 30-year old meant that the deal had collapsed.
Bale is now a Real Madrid player, at least until next January. The Welsh winger has done well so far. However, it seems that he does not see himself at the Bernabeu for too long. Evident by his reluctance to take hold of the team’s pennant when they posed for the cameras before their match against PSG in the Champions League.

Bale who was standing right in the centre for the team photo was handed the team flag for the picture by Raphael Varane. The Welshman can be seen disinclined to hold the pennant. He would go on to turn towards Dani Carvajal and gave it to the Spaniard immediately.
It certainly made for an awkward viewing, seeing the flag not in the centre where it should be.
Real Madrid would go on to lose the match 3-0 as the side paid for their shambolic performance. Bale himself had a night to forget as Los Blancos failed to register a single shot on goal through the night.
