Ahead of Saturday’s much anticipated first Clasico of the new La Liga season, Real Madrid’s recent record signing Gareth Bale has taken the opportunity to show that he is now fit and raring to go against Barcelona by demonstrating his vast array of skills in training.
The Wales international moved to the Santiago Bernabeu from Premier League outfit Tottenham Hotspur at the start of this campaign on a bumper six-year contract worth a staggering 300,000 euros per week for a world-record transfer fee of 100 million euros.
However, the 24-year-old’s time in the Spanish capital has so far been badly disrupted by injury, despite Bale managing to score on his full debut for los Blancos at Villarreal last month.
But that was one of only five matches in total that the wide man has been able to feature in for his new team to date, three of which came in the league, and two in the Uefa Champions League.
Bale has though now managed to recover from the thigh strain that he picked up in the warmup ahead of Madrid’s Liga clash with Getafe last month, with the winger in line to start Saturday’s afternoon massive encounter with arch-rivals and league leaders Barcelona at Camp Nou.
