Wales boss Chris Coleman says Gareth Bale would adapt well to life at Real Madrid
Gareth Bale would have no problems coping with a move to Spain if he joins Real Madrid this summer, according to Wales boss Chris Coleman.
The Tottenham star has been linked with Real all summer and his national team manager, who spent half-a-season in Spain managing Real Sociedad, thinks Bale would be able to adapt to the new lifestyle.
He said: “I have no reservations about how he would handle it.
“When you move to another country you have to embrace the culture and you can’t expect everybody else to change for you.
“For Gareth as a player wherever he goes he will have to learn the language and the culture, but his ability will always be there.
“His mentality is fine. He is a superstar, he is, he is a super talent, but he is not caught up with that.
“The best players don’t stop and think how well they have just done, they are always striving. How can I do better? How can I improve?
“That’s why the best stay there for so long, players like him and Ryan Giggs don’t care about how much money they have got, what fancy car he’s driving, or what big house he is living in or the stardom of it. It is all about being on the pitch and producing because they love football, genuinely.”
Real have reportedly offered £73m plus Fabio Coentrao for Bale.
