It turns out Gareth Bale may really be ready to step up and replace Cristiano Ronaldo for Real Madrid after all…
That’s based on these superb Bale video highlights below as the Welshman tore Roma apart in a friendly last night.

Bale first set up Marco Asensio with a superb outside-of-the-boot pass over the top for the Spaniard, before netting a lovely individual effort himself.
Few can deal with Bale when he’s in this kind of form, and if he can get over his recent injury woes he could have a really superb year.
Brilliant assist for Marco Asensio's opener, and then he followed up with a classic Bale goal.

It seems the 29-year-old never really clicked with old team-mate Ronaldo, but he’s a Juventus player now.
This could present Bale with the chance to become the main man at the Bernabeu, and this kind of performance should be hugely encouraging for Madrid fans.
