David Moyes has revealed that Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale was one of his primary transfer targets when he took over at Manchester United in 2013.

At that time, Bale was one of the hotly discussed transfer targets in world football. He was linked with Real Madrid and Manchester United at the same time. Both clubs were prepared to pay a world record transfer fee for the player, had just been creating wave after wave at Tottenham.

Real Madrid star, Gareth Bale says his long throws could be an extra weapon in Wales’ arsenal after terrorizing Austria’s defence with series of accurate deliveries into the box during Thursday’s 2-2 World Cup qualifying draw.

One of the 27-year old several throw-ins was converted to Wales’ second goal by Kevin Wimmer (own goal) in Vienna and which he subsequently caused panic on many other occasions with ball in hand.

And Bale, better known for his tireless speed and prowess with the ball at his feet – has no reservations about adding dangerous throw-ins to his already well-stocked attacking prowess. He hopes it would be useful for them in their other upcoming World Cup Qualifying matches as well.

“I will like to hear what my teammates have to say concerning that and what the manager says, I suppose it is another weapon we have got and, if we need to use it, we will use it,” he told reporters on Saturday. Continue reading BALE’S LONG THROW-INS, ANOTHER WEAPON

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.
