The Welsh superstar arrived on time to the session, but was told to leave and was seen driving away from the training ground at around 10.30am.
Both Bale and Jovic are now serious doubts for the league leaders' game on Saturday against Levante.
But this may be music to the ears of fans, who have regularly slammed Bale for his poor performances at the Bernabeu.
Once a world-record signing, £85.3m in 2013 from , Bale has faced backlash and abuse from fans both online and in real life.
Last weekend, when the 30-year-old played in the 4-1 win over Osasuna, he failed to get on the scoresheet, failed to complete a dribble and was off target with all three of his attempted shots.
Fans took to Twitter to highlight their disgust over Bale’s pitiful performance.
One fan wrote: ‘‘Sickening game from Bale, I really can’t be more patient with him!! Every round he drops a disasterclass over another one. Hope we get rid of him asap!’’
Another fan added: ‘‘Bale is a joke and is a joke for playing him’’.
As well as the abuse online, Bale regularly gets booed by his own fans for producing sub-par performances.
Angry supporters have even confronted Bale as he has left in his car after a defeat.
Levante currently sit 13th in , with four losses and a win in their last five games.
In Levante’s last meeting with Real Madrid, Madrid were the victors, however it was only a narrow 3-2 victory.
In that game, Madrid went 3-0 up by half time, only for Levante to almost scrape a point with two goals in the second half, but they could not find a third and ended up losing the game.
Bale has made 14 appearances in LaLiga this season, however Zinedine Zidane is not happy with Bale, even accusing the Welshman of refusing to play for Madrid.
Bale’s agent responded to this comment, saying that it would be ‘‘best for everyone’’ if Bale were to leave the club soon.
However, a January transfer failed to materialise, despite being linked to Manchester United and return to Tottenham, Bale is sure to be the subject of speculation in the summer.
