Real Madrid have confirmed that Gareth Bale is set for a significant time on the sidelines following his latest injury.
The club’s record signing had to go off from the El Clasico with a calf injury. This has been rated as quite a severe injury at Grade Two. He was unable to prevent Real Madrid from suffering a 3-2 loss against Barcelona in the game. This result has reopened the La Liga title race. It has been a very disappointing season from Bale, who has managed to make only 17 starts in the league this season. Even though he has scored seven goals and created to assist for his teammates, it is far less a contribution expected from a £ 85 million player.
Bale has been injured for much of the campaign. Unlike other injuries, he has been suffering from niggling injuries that have had a stop and start effect of the 2016-17 campaign. The latest calf injury is the fourth different problem that he has suffered the season. As a result, he has missed 27 games in all competitions this season. He has spent a whopping 119 days unavailable due to injuries. Continue reading Gareth Bale to Miss Champions League Semi-Final Due to Calf Injury
Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale claims that the Premier League is much harder than the Spanish league.
There has always been a competition between the top leagues in Europe especially when it comes to the strength of the teams. The general consensus is that the La Liga is far easier since only a handful of clubs tend to win most of the games. Bayern Munich are the sole dominating club when it comes to the German Bundesliga. In the Italian Serie A, Juventus have won the title for the last six seasons. The Premier league, though is much different.
Bale has played in the Premier league and the Spanish league. He reckons that a Premier league team cannot get away with playing at less than 100% even for a few minutes. It is because they can be punished rather quickly and end up dropping points. In the Spanish La Liga, though, he says that winning at half-time against a team from bottom of the table will almost surely end up in a victory in the second half.

Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville reckons that Eden Hazard has the capability to become as good as Neymar or Gareth Bale, but he says thatHazard has struggled to do so because of consistency issues.
The 26-year-old came up with an incredible reputation as one of the highly talented youngsters in world football. He has been at Chelsea for five years after having joined the club for around £ 32 million. In this period, he has managed to win several honours including the Europa League and the Premier league title. On an individual basis, Hazard was crowned as the PFA Player of the Year during the 2014-15 season.
However, Hazard failed to improve on this campaign as he had a season to forget in the 2015-16 campaign. Now, though, he appears to be one of the top players at Chelsea once again, although not necessarily the best. Hazard has scored 10 goals and created 4 in 25 appearancesthis season.

Gareth Bale thought that his season might be over when he went down with a nasty-looking injury back in November, but the Real Madrid medical team have done incredibly well to get the Welshman back to full fitness within the space of just three months.
Since returning to first team action, Bale has been heavily involved; scoring two goals inside one week before he was sent off in Real’s 3-3 draw with Las Palmas at the start of March. It would be fair to state that Bale has been at the centre of attention in recent times, but he can get back down to business now that things appear to have settled down.

Ryan Giggs says that he does not expect Gareth Bale to leave Real Madrid in the future.
Bale became the record signing for the club when he moved from Spurs in the summer of 2013 for a whopping £85m. Even though he has not been able to achieve the same level of popularity or match the personal of a Cristiano Ronaldo, he has been able to provide some crucial contribution to the team in almost every area. He has already managed to win several honours – especially the two Champions League medals. From time to time, speculation continues to mount about his future.
Bale has been linked with a return to English football with the likes of Manchester United, who are probably the only club at this moment who can afford the player without any restrictions from the financial fair play regulations. The 27-year-old may be coming to the time when he thinks about a return to English football where it all began for him. Continue reading Ryan Giggs Does Not See Gareth Bale Leaving Real Madrid
Gareth Bale is one of the greatest British footballers ever to make a name for himself on the continent, and has become a pivotal figure at Real Madrid. Not many stars have cut it in Spain before, and few have stayed as long as the Welshman. Throughout history, British players including Gary Lineker and Michael Owen, have always returned to the Premier League after a few seasons in La Liga. Will Bale do the same? Or is he set to live out his playing days in the famous white shirt of Los Blancos?
Bale has contributed to a highly successful period in Real Madrid’s history, helping the club win the Champions League twice in the last four years. In addition to that he has won the Copa Del Rey, the FIFA Club World Cup, and the UEFA Super Cup. Continue reading Will Bale Ever Return to the Premier League?
