Gareth Bale Keen on Winning Champions League on Welsh Soil

The 2017 Champions League final will be held in Wales at the millennium stadium in Cardiff.


It has already presented a golden opportunity for Gareth Bale to become one of the first squads to lift the title in back-to-back seasons. Since the rebranding in 1992, no team has managed to win the Champions League title in successive seasons. There have been several reasons suggested for this trend, but it has largely to do with the large number of matches that a winning team has to go through in the next campaign.

After having managed to lift the title by once again beating Atletico Madrid in the summer, Real Madrid are aiming to lift the trophy once again come the summer. For Bale, the game would also be extra special since it will be on his home soil. The Welshman is the second most expensive player in the world after having cost Madrid a remarkable £86 million. He has already revealed their faith with a large number of trophies compared to the large number of goals provided by a player like Cristiano Ronaldo. Bale admitted that winning the Champions League on Welsh soil would be a dream come true.

Alvaro Morata is not leaving Real Madrid

It seems like Alvaro Morata will not be making a move away from Real Madrid anytime soon and this is a huge blow for a few clubs including: Chelsea and Arsenal as those clubs had shown interest in signing the 23 year old Spanish attacker.

Real Madrid had initially placed a price tag on Alvaro Morata in the region of £63million but Zinedine Zidane has recently confirmed his desire to keep hold on Morata for the forseeable future as the French manager has plans of using Morata and actually putting him on the main team of Real Madrid by the next season.

Yes, Morata is a Real Madrid player. We’re delighted to have him back, back to his original home. He’s going to remain a Real Madrid player.” Zinedine Zidane said as he voiced his desire to keep hold of Morata.

A few weeks ago it was believed that Real Madrid was planning to offload Alvaro Morata in order to create enough funds and bring in Paul Pogba with that injection of cash but it seems like all of that was nothing but false rumors.

CHRIS COLEMAN WANTS TEAM TO REACH GARETH BALE’S LEVEL AT EURO 2016 DESPITE LOSS TO SWEDEN

The manager of Wales men’s national team advises his team to reach the level of Real Madrid star forward Gareth Bale.


Bale joined the team after resting for a while to recover from the stress of the UEFA Champions League.

The manager said he wanted the players and even himself to get as close to Bale’s level as much as possible as the challenge in France was a big one.  The Welsh team have not won a game since Bale’s last appearance for his country in October and still couldn’t pull off a victory when they took on Sweden n their last warm-up game ahead of their first Euro 2016 campaign.

The winger still has a fitness challenge going into the competition even though he has declared himself fit. Bale also has off field distractions as the father of his long term girlfriend faces up to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty in the US to his role £2 million ‘boiler room’ scam. Martin Rhys-Jones pleaded guilty to the charge putting strain on his daughter, Emma, who has two children already for Bale.

Madrid may reach Europe semi’s this time

Roller coaster is the word for the Madrid fans at the moment as the Whites seem to be defying the odds quite consistently.

The improbable Barcelona victory and then, the improbable Wolfsburg loss, now that’s a bit too much to take over a period of just 5 days.

A 0-2 loss at the Volkswagen Arena yesterday hurt Madrid’s hopes of reaching the Europe semis big time.

The Madrid players actually might have been carrying the hangover of that Barcelona victory with themselves as they lost the game within first half an hour itself.

The defence was so relaxed and complacent as if they just did not assume Wolfsburg to attack so vociferously in the initial moments.

As Steve McManaman said, and it would sound very true to those who would have seen the proceedings, it was no better than a school boyish defence from Madrid.

They did wake up after a point, but, only to find out that it was all too late. Wolfsburg was always going to park the bus with that sort of advantage.

It’s not the end, not with the unpredictability that Madrid has shown in the recent weeks. There’s got to be immense effort from the Blancos when they meet Wolfsburg at their fortress come Wednesday. But, there can’t be anyone disagreeing to the fact that this is a big low for them, losing the first leg this way, especially coming from that Camp Nou result.
