Bale, who joined Real for a then-world record £86million fee in 2013, has been absent since September 26 due to a calf injury but returned to full training last week. 

He is likely to be available for the Madrid derby against Atletico after the international break.

Real head coach Zinedine Zidane has not been afforded many opportunities to field Bale alongside Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo this term.

And, assuming the trio all stay injury-free during the next week, Zidane could unleash his attacking triumvirate against Atletico. 

Real are eight points behind La Liga rivals Barcelona but Zidane is hopeful the possibility of having Bale, Benzema and Ronaldo available after the international break can aid their bid to retain the Spanish title. 

He said: ”That the three of them are with us is interesting, as it means that we can work with them. 

“I’m not going to give you the details, but it’s time for them to focus on themselves because it’s clear that they want to talk with goals.”
