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
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.
It was during that season when Mbappe managed to showcase his skills as he scored 15 goals and provided his teammates with 8 assists which is impressive for a player that is 18 years old.
The 2016-17 season of Ligue 1 reached it´s end on May 20 of 2017 and from there on out, clubs began to show interest in signing the rising star. Real Madrid, Arsenal, Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus are the top clubs that have been attempting to secure the services of the French player who has already been compared to the likes of his retired country mate Thierry Henry.

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.

Following an impressive 4-1 victory over Juventus in front of his hometown, Welsh star Gareth Bale has promised to remain at Real Madrid come next season.
He revealed that he was happy being at the Spanish side and he committed his future to its cause.
“We are winning trophies and I am happy. I have signed a long term contract at Madrid. My family is happy and I am happy, so yes we will continue what we are doing,” Bale declared.
There were strong rumours linking the former Tottenham forward with a move to Manchester United this summer. He joined Real for record transfer fee of £85 million in 2013 but he has struggled to match expectations. His recent injury streak seemed to worsen the situation until the titles came in. One week the La Liga and the next a second third Champions League in four years. Continue reading GARETH BALE INSISTS ON REMAINING AT MADRID
Premier League giant Manchester United have reportedly opened a line of communication with Spanish side Real Madrid.
United are seeking a deal that would bring back Welsh star Gareth Bale to England after his world record transfer out in 2013.
Diario Gol says United are desperate for the services of the former Spurs star and that Mourinho hopes to convince his former club to sell the struggling player to him. The report claims Mourinho reached out to Real president Florentino Perez as he wants Bale to be his new star at Old Trafford.
United are a long time interested party but Bale could accede this time as he struggled this season. The 27-year old winger is in the race to make the Champions League final in June as he remains sidelined. He recently agreed to a new deal that would tie him up at the Bernabeu for years but reports in Spain say Madrid are mulling over the ideal of selling him.

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
