Real Madrid may have a problem on their hands following the United Kingdom’s decision to leave the European Union.

The European champions have already filled their non-EU quota of players, per Spanish newspaper AS, meaning that one of their current first-team players may need to leave the Bernabeu in order to free up space for Bale.

Following Friday’s historic referendum, Cardiff-born Bale would become a non-EU player.

James Rodriguez, Danilo and Casemiro are currently the three non-EU players in the Real Madrid squad.

Britain’s departure from the EU won’t happen imminently but the triumph of the Vote Leave campaign in the UK could force Real Madrid to alter their plans - with regards to potential player sales and signings - going forwards.

Bale expected to sign new long-term deal

Despite Britain’s decision to leave the EU, Real Madrid still intend to offer Bale a new contract once he returns from international duty at Euro 2016.

The Welshman, who currently sits alongside Alvaro Morata as the tournament’s top scorer, is expected to sign a new seven-year contract with the European giants - keeping him tied to the Bernabeu until 2023.
