Gareth Bale’s career start with Real Madrid picked off slowly as he got hit with an injury just days after completing his switch to the Spanish side and even when the recovery was completed, the struggle was more than evident as he was almost invisible during Real Madrid’s match against Barcelona in October, the head chiefs and fans of the club were starting to question if the £86million spent on the player was really worth it.
Even though it took some matches for the Welshman to adapt into Spain and the playing style of Real Madrid, he has finally made the break into the team that he needed in order to prove why he was signed. Scoring 5 goals in the last 3 matches for Real Madrid and scoring a hat-trick against Real Valladolid.
The manager of Wales Chris Coleman said that he was confident that Bale would make an impact in Real Madrid.
He told Sky Sports News: “”His talent was never in doubt. He is a fantastic player – one of the top players on the planet. But he is the same player as last year. He will not all of a sudden do ridiculous things to warrant that price tag’’.
“He is a super player, he is a great guy to work with and I think he is comfortable in Madrid, which is important and he is enjoying his football.
Manchester United stated that they tried to hijack the deal between Real Madrid and Gareth Bale as they made an initial offer for the player of £100m as the English club made a series of phone calls and even reunited with Tottenham’s head chiefs attempting to persuade the player on moving to United instead of Real Madrid but it ultimately fell apart as the Spanish side made an offer that was hard to turn down for Tottenham besides the fact that Bale’s only desire was to move to Real Madrid.
