Gareth Bale Likely to Miss El Clasico after Knee Injury

Real Madrid have confirmed that Gareth Bale has suffered a very bad knee injury in the 2-1 victory against Sporting Lisbon in the Champions League.

Latest reports, though, claimed that the player could be out for a much longer period, although Real Madrid did not specify the time frame. Bale is an extremely important player for the club and his absence would be a major blow for manager Zinedine Zidane.


Claims by The Times says that Gareth Bale, Real Madrid’s playmaker and star player might soon be demanding a pay package that is equivalent to that of his team mate, Cristiano Ronaldo.

This comes on the heels of Madrid’s move to negotiate new contracts with two of its highly valued players.


Five-time Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi and three time Ballon D’or winner Cristiano Ronaldo have been enmeshed in rivalry for years.

Pay is one of such rivalry, with one seeking to outdo the other when it’s time to get a new deal at their various clubs. It is apparent Gareth Bale and Neymar are pay rivals as well already. Both players are predicted to be the future winners of the Ballon d’Or in the near future, so the rivalry isn’t difficult to notice.
