The Welshman rejoined Spurs on a season-long loan earlier this year but he's struggled to hit top form.
Bale has scored just one Premier League goal and the Spurs hierarchy are reportedly 'disappointed' with his contributions.
But a return to the Spanish capital is out of the question as Defensa Central per Daily Star claim Madrid do not want the player back at all.
A decision has already been made to not let Bale take part in any kind of training should he come back, with manager Zinedine Zidane and president Florentino Perez in agreement.
'Los Blancos' are also said to be worried about Spurs taking the 31-year-old on a permanent deal, given his poor performances.
Spurs boss Jose Mourinho confirmed Bale is currently out with a calf injury he suffered against Stoke City in the Carabao Cup.
"No, I don't expect Gareth to be fit," he said per Goal. "I wouldn't say it's a serious injury, but I would say a few weeks."
Bale is currently used as a rotation player by Mourinho and club legend Glenn Hoddle thinks he needs to push himself more to succeed.
"I always said when he came back that I do not think we should expect anywhere near the same Gareth Bale that left Tottenham or achieved what he did at Real Madrid," the former England boss told the Evening Standard.
"Do not forget that he has not actually been playing in the main Spurs team. Jose Mourinho has not seen enough from him and I have not seen enough from him.
"Gareth has had time to get fit and has got fitter, so I do not think it is his fitness now. It is a mentality with him now.
"He has to push himself more, physically and mentally, and he could be like a brand new player waiting to join this Tottenham squad.
"He has just been on the periphery and he has to be a little bit more, 'I am the man, you have got to give me the ball'.
"Gareth is not going to be running past four or five players like he used to but I think he can create. He has a good pass on him and with more time on the pitch he will get a good link with Harry Kane and Heung min-Son.
"One of the things Tottenham are lacking is creativity. There is not that creative spark. Gareth Bale coming back would be sensational. But he has more to show."
