Madrid sports dailies report today that Gareth Bale didn’t show up for Tottenham Hotspur’s friendly against Espanyol, claiming the Welshman is pressuring Spurs to let him leave.
Marca states the fans have already forgotten about him and have a new idol: Spanish striker Roberto Soldado, who played his first match for Spurs and scored a goal.
Both Madrid papers put their focus on Real Madrid’s victory over Inter Milan. “The Madrid of illusion”, titles As. “Los Blancos end the pre-season unbeaten. Kaka and Casemiro make a big impression”, they add.
Marca also emphasizes Casemiro’s great performance, and states that “Real impressed with his beautiful game”.
