Cristiano Ronaldo meets Bale in horribly staged event

Published Add your comment

Gareth Bale's first training session with Real Madrid started with an awkward meeting between the new £85million man and Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Welsh winger has replaced Real Madrid favourite Ronaldo as the most expensive footballer in the world. All eyes were on the duo as they were introduced for the first time in front of the cameras.

The event proved to be very staged as Bale arrived at Real’s Valdebebas facility.

The £165million pair were all smiles as they shook hands ahead of training.

Ronaldo had lead a Real revolt over the loss of German playmaker Ozil and it was feared the new record breaking summer signing Bale could be the one to face the backlash, but pictures from the meeting showed things were fine in the Real Madrid dressing room....for now.
