Bale trains with Real to prepare for debut

MADRID - Gareth Bale trained with his new Real Madrid teammates for the first time on Wednesday, with Cristiano Ronaldo among the first to welcome the world-record signing to the club’s Valdebebas training facilities.

Real plays at Villarreal in La Liga on Saturday, and the Wales winger could make his debut after his €100 million ($133 million) move from Tottenham Hotspur in the recent transfer window.

Real published photographs of Portugal forward Ronaldo and Bale greeting each other before the players, many of whom returned from international duty on Wednesday, before they took to the pitch under the orders of coach Carlo Ancelotti.

“Bale started the session with some individual physical work and later joined the rest of the outfield players,” Real said on its Web site. Reuters
