Madrid, Spain ( - Real Madrid has confirmed that winger Gareth Bale is suffering from a left thigh injury and the club does not know how long the record signing will be out.

The Wales international has already been ruled out of Wednesday's Champions League match with FC Copenhagen, and it's possible he could also miss Madrid's league contest at Levante on Saturday.

"After the tests carried out today, the player Gareth Bale has been diagnosed with a muscle contracture in his left thigh," said a statement on the Real Madrid website.

"It remains to be seen how the condition develops."
