Real Madrid could be without Gareth Bale after April 1, 2019.
Real Madrid are currently not in a good form and have been very shaky at times this season. The Los Blancos lost Cristiano Ronaldo in the summer transfer window when he expressed his desire to leave the reigning European Champions and the failure to replace the Portuguese International has put them in an uneasy situation.
Julen Lopetegui who demanded a world-class striker following the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo could not last more than four months at the club. He was sacked following a resounding 5-1 defeat to Barcelona in the El Classico during late October.
They were constantly linked with Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino, but there is no chance that the Argentine would leave the current project with the London outfit to join the Los Blancos during mid-season. When Florentino Perez was running out of options, he finally chose Santiago Solari and handed him a three-year contract.
Since then, Madrid have been able to revive themselves by sitting in the top four and qualifying for the knockout rounds of the Champions League and Quarterfinals of the Copa Del Rey. But, the results have always been consistent and the players at the front and the back have continuously been at trouble.
It will be interesting to see how things pan out as they are already linked with the likes of Eden Hazard, Mauro Icardi, Christian Eriksen, and Eder Militao. They will be looking to revamp their forward department as Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale and Marco Asensio have been blowing hot and cold since the start of the season.
Top Scorers this season • Benzema (12) • Bale (10) • Ramos (7) • Asensio (4) • Isco (4)
Most Assists this season • Bale (5) • Vinicius Jr (5) • Benzema (5) • Modric (4) • Odriozola (4)

At the back, Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane have never been able to replicate their old performances as they continue to leak goals at the back. To make things worse, the Los Blancos could be without their expensive player in the current squad from April 1.
This is down to the Brexit rule which could play a huge part in tormenting plenty of European and English clubs in the future. If the rule is applied, it could see Britain being separated from the rest of Europe.
As per the Spanish publication AS, only non three EU players could register for the La Liga club which could be a huge blow for Real Madrid. The Spanish side already have Federico Valverde, Vinicius Junior, and Casemeiro as the third non-EU players. Additionally, Rodrygo is another player who will be signing for the Los Blancos in the upcoming summer.

If these things happen, to make things worse, it will see Gareth Bale leave the Spanish outfit after six years.
