There always have been and there always will be debates all over the world about who is the best football player on the planet and, over the past few years there have only really been two names at the top of the list; Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. However, there are plenty of talented stars who are beginning to come through and make a name for themselves on a global level.
One such star is the Welsh wizard Gareth Bale, who made a name for himself at English Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur, before making a big money move to Spanish giants Real Madrid. Gareth has been enjoying his progress at Real Madrid and is set for many more seasons of success there, although he has admitted that he could return to Tottenham when his Real Madrid career is over.
Bale explained, "Tottenham will always have a place in my heart. I hope the fans still love me even though I've moved on. I love Spurs fans. You never know, I could come back one day. I hope they understand that obviously Real Madrid is a massive, massive club and that they respect my decision. From the moment Madrid put the offer in it was difficult. Tottenham was somewhere I felt so comfortable and so happy."
Gareth Bale has already been proving himself among the Real Madrid elite over the past season and a half, putting in some impressive performances along the way. To add to his own, individual achievements, Gareth also managed to become a Champions League winner with Real Madrid last season.
