Former Brazil international Ronaldo has warned that Gareth Bale cannot afford to put in any below-par performances for Real Madrid.
Following a record breaking £86million transfer Ronaldo warns the Welsh winger that there is immense pressure to impress and live up to the billing.
'It is only normal that, whenever he puts in a poor performance, the fans will remind him that the club paid €100m for him,' Ronaldo told Radio Barcelona.
'I can only recommend to Bale that he does not let his price tag become an obsession.'
The Spanish Giants have seen some the worlds greats play for them, including the likes of Ronaldo, David Beckham, Roberto Carlos and Zinedine Zidane.
If Bale thrives at the club and doesn't fold under the pressure of his enormous price tag then his name could go down in history along with these Real Madrid legends.
Real Madrid Club president Florentino Perez, who has signed some of the biggest names in football, welcomed the ex-Tottenham player and introduced to a 25,000-strong crowd at the Bernabeu.
Bale got his first glimpse of what it is like to be a Los Blancos player.
Perez addressed the new Real Madrid player: "Many of the best players in the best world have graced this pitch and you are now following in their footsteps."
He then went on to say: "This is your stadium, this is your shirt, these are your supporters."
