Gareth Bale trains with Real Madrid for the first time

Published Add your comment

The world's most expensive player Gareth Bale is training with his Real Madrid team mates for the very first time after leaving Tottenham.

The Welsh winger is edging closer to his 'Los Blancos' debut in Real's La Liga clash at Villareal on Saturday evening after being spotted taking part in a training session with his team mates.

It remains to be seen how big a role the 24-year-old midfielder will play in Saturday's game given that he has hardly trained in pre-season.

Bale's chance of starting the match have been boosted by injuries to Madrid's regular left back's Fabio Coentrao and Marcelo.

The duo will be monitored closely before away trip to Villareal but the injury doubts will increase the Welsh Internationals chances of making his eagerly awaited debut for the Madrid side.

All eyes will be on the £85million playmaker as his only action this season was when he took the field as a 59th minute substitute for Wales in their 3-0 defeat to Serbia on Tuesday night. Real Madrid fans will want to know if he can live up to his staggering price-tag.

Bale made his switch from Tottenham to Real Madrid on deadline day of this summers transfer window and has called the move 'a dream come true'.
