Real Madrid record-signing, Gareth Bale, believes the Los Blancos are the ‘biggest club in the world’ and he says he joined them to win the Champions League.
Bale has scored five goals in his first Champions League campaign and recently confirmed he always dreamed of winning the competition and that is why he joined Real Madrid.
“I'd like to win the Champions League and also play in the World Cup with Wales,” the Welshman said.
“This season we're in a position to fight for the Champions League. It would be a dream come true to play in the final but at the moment I'm just thinking of the semi-finals. Then I'll look further forward.”
Real are targeting the famous ‘La Decima’, their tenth European title, but have not reached the final since they won the competition in 2002 when Bale was only 13 years old.
“I have been a Real Madrid fan since I was ten or eleven years old, when I saw them win the ninth European Cup with Zidane's wonder-goal,” he continued.
“I'm really enjoying my time at Real Madrid and I want to continue to do so. I hope to win a lot of titles with this team.
“I'm playing for the biggest club in the world, who are fighting for every title and who have the best fans. It's a pleasure to play for Real Madrid.”
Real have reached the semi-finals for the fourth successive year, but failed to progress to final in their previous three attempts.
