Real Madrid star Casemiro defends Gareth Bale after boos from fans

Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro has defended fellow teammate Gareth Bale, who was booed by Los Blancos fans for the second game in a row.


The Wales international bagged two assists in the 3-0 Champions League triumph over APOEL Nicosia, but he still received a chorus of boos from the club’s supporters.

Bale was substituted in the 82nd minute to be replaced by Borja Mayoral, and he was met with by a cacophony of whistles, although his teammates tried to silence them with a round of applause. Following the game, a number of Los Blancos players came in the Welshman’s support with Casemiro insisting that the attacker remains influential to their style of play.

Speaking to Marca, he said: “He was a very strong player for us and I hope he continues to be so. We try to protect the players we have. We are always defending our own. It shows that we are a family. I defend my team-mates as if they were my family and I am with them until the end. With the quality he has, things will be going well for him one day.” Continue reading Real Madrid star Casemiro defends Gareth Bale after boos from fans

WOULD BALE SUCCEED ON PL RETURN?

There is increasing speculation that Gareth Bale could move back to the Premier League this summer if his current employer Real Madrid successfully lure Monaco star Kylian Mbappe.


Bale has not contributed as much as expected following his record £85 million move from White Hart Lane in 2013. With his reported salary of £600,000 per week – net £350,000 after tax – Madrid might cut him from the squad.

Isco has been brilliant in Bale’s place and with a teeming reservoir of local talents; the Spanish side might shift things to another direction. Bale’s tenure at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu has been mixed. His calf injuries might not allow him reach his zenith and as he ages he would likely contribute lesser while earning more. During Carlo Ancelotti’s tenure when the club ended up trophy-less, Bale was jeered by a section of the fans and since returning he has not impressed as much.

With Jose Mourinho’s Man United team focused on returning to being a football superpower, Bale’s addition would be a big plus. The Red Devils tried signing the Welshman in 2007 when he moved from St Mary’s to White Hart Lane. They were serious with signing him four years ago as well but Bale preferred the move to Spain.

BALE NETS AS MADRID BEGIN TITLE DEFENCE

Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale was among the goalscorers as the defending champions of the La Liga started their title defence on a strong note. Zinedine Zidane and his boys defeated Deportivo 3-0 away to send a strong message to all rivals this term.

He was booked for simulation minutes later and had to be sent off. He pushed the referee in anger so LA Liga banned him for five games. Continue reading BALE NETS AS MADRID BEGIN TITLE DEFENCE

Is Kylian Mbappe, the successor of Bale in Real Madrid?

Kylian Mbappe is one of the most sought out youngsters in the world of football as the French attacker is only 18 years old but has already been highly praised for what he has done with his current club As.Monaco in the previous 2016-17 season.

Journalist hints that Gareth Bale could be at Old Trafford next season

Guardian sportseditorBarry Glendenning suggests that Gareth Bale could make a Premier League return with Manchester United during this summer’s transfer window.


The Wales international suffered multiple injuries during the 2016/17 season, and this restricted him to just 27 appearances across all competitions. Meanwhile, the biggest disappointment for him would have been to miss a starting role in the Champions League football where Isco was preferred on the right side of the attack.

Isco worked his socks off during the backend of the season and manager Zinedine Zidane had no choice but to start him owing to his workrate displayed during Bale’s injury absence. As a result, Bale’s future has come into question this summer with Real Madrid hot on the trail of Monaco frontman Kylian Mbappe. Mbappe is likely to cost a world-record sum in order to switch clubs in the summer, and Bale could potentially be cashed-in in order to recoup some of the funds. Alvaro Morata is the other on the outgoing list with Manchester United seemingly leading the race for his signature.
