PP Sports released a statement on Thursday night, claiming the termination was just a "strategic adjustment".
"It was a heavy finish. It was maybe the most easy stage I ever did in a cycling race because there was no breakaway, not a high pace at all, but then the last hour was really hectic with the wind," Van Aert said.
Speaking to Sky Sports while on international duty with Wales, Bale was asked about his future at the La Liga champions.
His contract with Real Madrid runs to June 2022, but Bale has refused to rule out a move, either this summer or in January.
"It was anybody's game really for a set and a half. I made some breaks and then obviously after winning the second set I felt more comfortable. I was returning better, I started to read his serve better, and I was pleased with my serve. Overall, it was a very good test, and I am happy to get through," said Djokovic, who is bidding to capture his fourth US Open trophy and 18th Grand Slam title.
Also on Thursday, former Italian international Eder scored the winner to help Jiangsu Suning beat Shangdong Luneng 1-0.
Asked whether he would be willing to return to England in the future, Bale replied, "If those options arise, it is something I'd look at for sure."
The 33-year-old striker, who came on after the interval, latched onto a through pass from teammate Wu Xi before sending it into the net in the 65th minute.
With his final stage win, Valter became the overall winner of this year's Tour de Hongrie.
