The Welshman has caught everyone's eye in recent weeks thanks to his antics on the 'Los Blancos' bench as well as complete lack of interest in winning La Liga.
Bale was once the most expensive footballer in the world and he still has a wage that matches that tag according to The Guardian.
He signed a lucrative six-year extension with Madrid in 2016 which is worth a reported £150 million a year, which breaks down to £18.2 million per year and £120 million without bonuses.
Earlier this year saw the former Tottenham Hotspur man top The Times' 'Young Rich List' for sports stars.
Bale leads the way with £114 million, up £20 million from last year, ahead of Anthony Joshua, the only boxer on the list, on £107 million.
However, the man himself revealed back in May that his hostile relationship with Madrid fans has impacted his confidence.
"We get a lot of pressure every game. If you don't play well, there's scrutiny," Bale told The Erik Anders Lang Show per Sky Sports.
"I've had 80,000 people in a stadium whistle at me because I haven't played well. I've had it a few times! It's not nice and it doesn't do your confidence any good either."
When asked why fans respond this way, the winger remarked: "This is the biggest question and I just don't get it.
"You would expect that if you're not having a good time on the pitch, your fans would get behind you and try to help you do better because it'll make them happy.
"But it seems that they do the opposite. They whistle you, which consequentially makes you feel worse, you lose your confidence, you play worse and then that makes them even more upset."
Back on the pitch, Bale has started just 12 games in La Liga this season and has made two substitute appearances since football's return last month.
Bale didn't feature at all again on Thursday night as Zinedine Zidane's side sealed the title with a 2-1 victory over Villarreal.
Two La Liga titles and four Champions League wins proves that his time abroad hasn't been a waste.
But it seems that his career is in danger of fading away if he remains on the Santiago Bernabeu sidelines.
