Bale 'happy' at Madrid amid Man United links

Posted June 18, 2017

Strikes in each half from Ronaldo made him the first player to score in three finals in the Champions League era, adding to his goals in the 2008 and 2014 showpieces for Manchester United and Real respectively.

"We played very well in the first half".

I'll go as far as I can. I'm very happy - an unbelievable season, we've won trophies.

"It was a good choice by the coach and I'm very happy".

"I prepared myself for this, you win the biggest prizes because of what you do at the end of the season". I have two or three days to rest now then I have a qualifying game for Portugal.

Speculation that the Colombia global will depart the Santiago Bernabeu this summer only intensified after he was left out of the squad for Saturday's 4-1 Champions League final victory over Juventus, but Perez says his future still has to be decided on by Zidane.

"Having said that, you know how things are".

Bale, who becomes the only sixth player to win the Champions League at his hometown, believes they are a special squad.

Juventus are a European superpower, a team which dominates one of the toughest leagues in the world, but they were outclassed by Ronaldo and the Principality Stadium.

Against Juventus he denied Miralem Pjanic well early on but might have done better to keep out Mario Mandzukic's spectacular bicycle kick equaliser.

"If he (Zidane) can see something that we can do on the pitch, he tells us, and we are trying to do it in our best way", Modric said.

Juve have now lost 5 successive European Cup finals and a record 7 in total.

Juventus had substitute Juan Cuadrado dismissed six minutes from time after two yellow cards - the second after some embarrassing play-acting from Madrid captain Sergio Ramos.

"No, I don't think Juventus have reached the end of a cycle at all", he said.

From beaten finalists Juve, Gianluigi Buffon is joined by Leonardo Bonucci and Miralem Pjanic, with semi-finalists Atletico Madrid and Monaco represented by Jan Oblak, Antoine Griezmann, Diego Godin, Kylian Mbappe and Tiemoue Bakayoko. The same applies to Andrea Barzagli, who will still be with us for at last another year. They still have lots to give this club.
