Gareth Bale excited by Real Madrid return


Real Madrid’s newest signing, Gareth Bale, has expressed his excitement at returning to the club following the international fixtures.

The Welshman signed for Los Blanco on deadline day but went straight off to team up with his Wales for their World Cup qualifiers, although he only made it off the bench for the final third of the match against Serbia, which Wales lost 3-0.

Having missed much of pre-season due to a foot injury, Bale said he was happy to return to the playing field, and is now focused on settling in at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Writing on his Twitter account, the winger said: “Great to finally get back to playing tonight, shame about the result though. Can’t wait to get to Madrid tomorrow #halamadrid.”

The 24-year-old could be set to make his Real debut away at Villareal on Saturday.
