Gareth Bale's start to life in Madrid has not gone to plan so far this season.
The world record £86m signing from Tottenham has struggled with injuries throughout his first two months in Spain.
The 24-year-old has also failed to replicate the outstanding goalscoring form that saw him seal a move to Madrid.
Bale, who scored 26 times for Andre Villas-Boas' side last season, has not scored since his debut goal against Villarreal.
The Welshman's performances are being heavily scrutinised by the Spanish media, which is likely to put even more pressure on Bale's shoulders.
Bale was criticised for his display against Barcelona on Saturday, when Real Madrid lost 2-1 to La Liga title rivals Barcelona.
The former Tottenham man was replaced by Karim Benzema after 61 minutes, as Bale failed to make any real impact on the first El Clasico of the season.
Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti defended Bale's performance after the game by saying he needs time to adapt to life in Spain.
The Italian tactician also called on Real Madrid fans to be patient with their summer signing. However - how long will they wait to see the best of Bale?
If their fans are already starting to get on his back - after just six games - then what will they be doing if he maintains his poor form until the end of the current campaign?
Real Madrid cannot afford to have any passengers, as crucial games come thick and fast.
Bale has already been linked with a move back to the Premier League and it wouldn't surprise me if he was plying his trade at Manchester United by the end of summer 2015.
The Red Devils - according to Real Madrid president Florentino Perez - tried to hijack his side's deal for Bale, as David Moyes looked to bring in a high-profile signing.
However United entered the fray far too late, leaving Bale to seal his 'dream move' to the Santiago Bernabeu.
Moyes' United - with the help of Ryan Giggs - may just have another chance of signing Bale, especially if he fails to live up to his enormous price-tag between now and the end of next season.
