Gareth Bale was able to help Real Madrid get a big win by scoring a goal. This also happened to be the first goal that he scored in a timeframe of 100 days. La Liga visit of Real Madrid was thus successful at the El Alcoraz stadium in Huesca. The win that was obtained was a score of 1-0. This helped to volley Madrid ahead; it also helped to lift the team to the Primera Division in the fourth position.
On account of Bale’s performance, this goal that he obtained in a time span of 100 days and 40 shot attempts will help to pacify many critics. This will also help him gain back his confidence. The team also had several youngsters performing well such as Fede Valverde, 20-year-old who played well in this game. The attack strategy of Madrid did help them win the game but the opposing team’s defense had gotten them two goals in the same season and hence, many feel that Solari’s team was simply lucky in this particular match.

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.

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.

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.

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
