Gareth Bale may be the most expensive player in football history but that does not mean the Real Madrid superstar can do as he pleases.
The Welshman found he was not above the rules of traffic flow as he tried to leave the Bernabeu following Los Blancos' 3-1 win over Real Sociedad on Wednesday afternoon.
Bale, who cost €100 million from Tottenham Hotspur in 2013, wanted to turn left in his Audi Q7, but the officer was having none of it and insisted the forward turned right.

After an exchange of hand pointing and whistleblowing, Bale finally relented and followed the orders, but not before one cheeky attempt that left one officer extremely frustrated. (Watch the video below)
We can only assume that the inability to turn left was a huge inconvenience for Real Madrid's number 11.
The incident came after a result that put Rafa Benitez's side top of La Liga for a matter of hours.
The club from the Spanish capital finished 2015 in third position and are two points behind leaders Barcelona and Atletico Madrid. Although, the Catalan giants do have a game in hand.
Real Madrid were on the receiving end of some fortunate refereeing decision against Sociedad but they still had to put in a strong performance.
Despite not finding the net himself, Bale was voted as Man of the Match for a fine performance that included one of the best assists you are likely to see all season.
