Gareth Bale Signs for Real Madrid
Gareth Bale signs for Real Madrid. Gareth Bale is finally a Real Madrid player and was officially unveiled before thousands at the Bernabeu earlier today. The biggest transfer saga of the summer has finally come to an end and as per usual, Real Madrid gets their man, even if that means spending £86m. The Welshman becomes the most expensive player in World football, surpassing the £80m paid for Christian Ronaldo in 2009.
During the unveiling ceremony, Bale seemed right at home, displaying some skill and speaking the Spanish language to the excitement of the fans. President Perez welcomed the new signing with the following statements,
This is your stadium, this is your shirt, this is your field and these are your fans. From now on this is your home. Welcome to your team. Welcome to Real Madrid. Challenges are constant, even after victory but never forget the energy of this stadium will be your ally. Many great players have played here and you will be one of their heirs. We always want to add the best players in the world.
Bale had the support of his family and 11 months old daughter who were present at the ceremony. He will have much to prove and all eyes will be on him to perform well. Tottenham have lost out on the iconic player, but Real Madrid has added an offensive weapon that is bound to cause problems for any opponents that they face.
