Gareth Bale talks to Marca
Welsh star Gareth Bale graces the front page of Marca on Monday after the forward sat down with the Spanish paper to discuss a range of topics in a new interview during pre-season.
Bale, who struggled with injuries last season in Spain, is currently participating in the club’s pre-season in Los Angeles, and he’s looking ripped.
The Real star earns around £350,000 a week after tax, while he’s under contract with Madrid until 2022.
The Wales international scored nine goals in 27 appearances in all competitions last season.

Man United move?
On Sunday in England, the Express revived the old rumour that Bale could join Man United.
Marca have again pressed the former Spurs star about a possible transfer to Old Trafford, however Bale has tried to dismiss the speculation:
I haven’t read anything. I have no clue about what’s going to happen. Look, yesterday I found out that [Romelu] Lukaku had signed for Manchester United… I honestly don’t know.
We won titles, we did well, we don’t need to change anything.
I have not thought of leaving Madrid.
Ronaldo’s Real Madrid exit
Another rumour swirling around Spain this summer centres on Cristiano Ronaldo’s future with Los Blancos.
After the Portugal star was hit with an enormous tax bill from the Spanish taxman, rumours spread that Ronaldo was ready to leave the country.
So what’s Bale heard about Ronaldo’s commitment to the club? He simply said:
Well, you’ll have to ask him.
