After playing 30 minutes for Wales on Tuesday, Gareth Bale finally joined up with his new Real Madrid team-mates on Wednesday. Video released by the club showed a smiling Bale being greeted by team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo as he arrived at the Valdebebas training ground.
He was then greeted by manager Carlo Ancelotti and his assistant Zinedine Zidane at a pre-training session in a meeting room.
Bale then joined the rest of players for a two-hour session, where he met up with his former Spurs team-mate Luka Modric.
Only Ancelotti, and perhaps his coaching staff, know whether Bale will make his debut during Saturday’s La Liga match against Villarreal.
But Wales boss Chris Coleman said on Wednesday that Bale is not fit enough to play a full 90 minutes.
Real have won their opening three La Liga matches under Ancelotti, who replaced Jose Mourinho at the end of last season. Report by Mark Morris.
