Bale Injury Saga

Gareth Bale’s stint on the sidelines doesn’t look over after Real Madrid were forced to deny suggestions in Spanish newspaper Marca that their record signing has a slipped disk.

Bale has failed to make an impact in La Liga since his €100m transfer from Spurs last month, largely due to an injured foot and pulled hamstring. Frustration is growing among Madrid fans, many of who are desperate to see their new Galactico in action.
