Speaking after Real Madrid became the first team to win back-to-back Champions League titles following their 4-1 win against Juventus on Saturday, Bale said: "We are winning trophies and I am happy".

Midfielder Gareth Bale is enjoying life at Spanish champions Real Madrid and has committed his future to the club, the Welsh worldwide said after the side's Champions League triumph on Saturday.

As we mentioned before it has been a disappointing campaign for the 27-year-old, who made just 27 appearances in all competitions because of hip, ankle and calf injurires.

60 - Real Madrid were the only team in the Top Five European Leagues to score in every match in all comps in 2016/2017 (60).

Real's victory ensured they returned to Spain with the Champions League trophy, thus becoming the first club in the modern era to retain the cup.

For Manchester United, Bale long predates their pursuit of Griezmann, having tried to sign the Welsh worldwide when he first moved to Madrid in 2013. We have won the Champions League three times in four seasons so we have to be in that category.

"The players have entered into the legend of Real Madrid and of football, as has our coach", said club president Florentino Perez.
