The Welshman's career in Madrid has been blighted by injury and occasional dips in form, which saw him become a bit-part player last season under Zinedine Zidane.

Lopetegui was keen to stress that the Portuguese's departure represented a "fantastic opportunity" for Bale, who has been linked by Spanish media with a move away from the club, to stay and show his talent.

Bale came off the bench to score twice in Real's Champions League final win against Liverpool in May. He expressed a desire to leave and we allowed him to.

"Everyone is helping me a lot to settle as quickly as possible".

"He's very happy to play at Real Madrid", said Lopetegui ahead of the pre-season friendly with Manchester United on Wednesday.

Juventus new signing, Cristiano Ronaldo showed what the fans should be expecting from him in the coming season as he scored a brilliant goal in a training session. "It is the start of an exciting path for us".

China says United States ‘blackmail’ won’t work, warns of retaliation on tariffs
Beijing retaliated with matching tariffs on the same amount of U.S. exports to China. He also has threatened a further round of tariffs on $300 billion of Chinese goods .

Spanish publication El Pais claims that Madrid approached both players' agents following Cristiano Ronaldo's exit from the club last month, but were informed that neither player is for sale this summer.

"I am delighted. They have and everyone has, with commitment and enthusiasm".

"It is an improved situation that these players don't use us and then go".

"We want to be a great team on the pitch".

"Although it has to be emphasised that we have some great individual players and with them we will try to build a great team".
