wants to say his goodbyes to the Bernabeu faithful this weekend when Real Madrid
take on Real Betis in the final game of the season.
Almost six years after 30,000 Madrid fans turned out to welcome him following a then-world-record £86million move from Tottenham, the Wales international is preparing to bid farewell.
Bale's Bernabeu exit appears to be set in stone with boss Zinedine Zidane
preparing for the biggest transfer overhaul in the club's recent history.

And, according to Spanish outlet Marca
, Los Blancos's final fixture of the season this Sunday will represent Bale's opportunity to show his gratitude to the supporters who have watched him claim 13 trophies during his stay in the Spanish capital.
The winger, 29, is eager to go out on his terms on the pitch after Zidane has kept him sidelined for the previous two games against Villareal and Real Sociedad.
Whether Bale's wish will be granted, however, remains to be seen.
Bale, who is the most high-profile name on the 14-strong list of star-studded names expected to be shipped out of the Spanish capital this summer
, has been told he will be frozen out of the first team should he not be able to find a new club this summer.
Paris Saint-Germain, Tottenham and Manchester United have all been mooted as potential destinations for the Welshman.
Chelsea star Hazard has been heavily linked to replace Bale with Real ready to make a £86million bid for the Chelsea talisman.
