Indeed, it's suggested the Welshman's unwillingness to mix with his teammates is beginning to anger senior players.
Local pundit Eduardo Inda says the concern has reached president Florentino Perez, with claims Bale is making little effort to socialise outside the locker room.
"The big players of Real Madrid are angry with Bale because he does not relate to anyone, only with (Luka) Modric because he knows him from their time at Tottenham," he told El Chiringuito.
"They believe he's not making any effort to socialise."
Further hurting Bale's status with teammates is his poor form, with younger teammates Isco and Marco Asensio pushing for more minutes this season.
