Gareth Bale is very close to a comeback after he recovered from an injury of a calf strain, as per Santiago Solari who is at present the coach of Real Madrid. Gareth has not played any match since he ruptured his calf in a match against Villarreal on 3rd January but the player has now resumed very light training by the end of this week.
“Marcos Llorente, Toni Kroos, Gareth Bale, Marco Asensio, and Mariana Diaz are very close to making a comeback, and also Keylor Navas, Santiago said at a conference (press) on last Wednesday. “All of them are very important players for our squad so we are delighted.”
The match that Real Madrid faces this weekend against Rayo Vallecano might see the Welsh forward playing but there is some doubt regarding his form. That is because Bale has been facing ankle injury concerns. The head coach of Blancos, Santiago Solari has not ruled out the forward’s participation in the match but there are concerns regarding his health.
There had been a match midweek between Real Madrid and CSKA Moscow whereby the former suffered a loss with a score of 3-0; Bale was introduced as a half-time substitute in the game. The setback in his fitness levels came back after that.
