Gareth Bale is the future of Real Madrid and the beating heart of the sensational Wales national side. Although always an exceptional athlete, at one time it seemed like Bale’s terrible injury record would stop him from ever fulfilling his potential. But in the season of 2012-2013, he caught fire for Tottenham Hotspur and never looked back, bagging a PFA Player of the Year Award and a move to the world’s biggest club. His transfer to Real Madrid made him the world’s most expensive player, and his life changed forever. This revealing portrait delves into just how the boy from Cardiff went on to become the world’s most in-demand player. It also traces how his relationship with the notoriously competitive Ronaldo unfolded and how he has gradually emerged from his teammate’s shadow to become Real Madrid’s most prized asset, and a Welsh national hero.
