Ronaldo will go down as one of the greats, Bale will go down as a great player.
I can only see Real slipping backwards now. Bale is an excellent player but not in Ronaldo's league, and also his fitness is questionable.
Lopetegui needs to focus on youth and team building.
Bale regret playing for England. - Not a chance he's a Welsh boy to the core.
Why are the English so jealous of people who succeed? The people saying Real will be better without Ronaldo hate his greatness so much they hope its true. Name one team that got better after the best player in the world left?
No more living in Ronaldo's shadow. Bale will show his true worth now he's gone.
As for Bale, he's a fantastic player and he's a joy to watch on form. But in comparison to Ronaldo, he's Jimmy Bullard to Eric Cantona. He's not even in the same postcode as Ronaldo, but who is? No besmirchment of Bale as he's world class, he's just not a top 50 all time player, and Ronaldo could easily be top 3. That's the difference. Bale is Andy Murray, Ronaldo is Federer. Different class
Translation - Real have been blown out by all their transfer targets, and for the first time in their history they can't afford the players they want. They want Mbappe, can't have him so they're tapping up Hazard. They want De Gea, can't afford him so they're tapping up Courtois. They'll be awful next season, Ronaldo is one humongous, irreplaceable hole to fill*Ooohhh *That's what she said*
All the news around the world and the BBC allows comments on a bale out!
If he can stay fit then he could become a legend at Real Madrid. I hope he does well, he already has a pretty good legacy.
It's now time for Bale to step up and challenge for the Ballon d'Or, i think he can do it
Many comments saying Ronaldo wasn't a team player and now the goals will spread. That may be true but in the big games when they need 2 goals Ronaldo was there to score and teammates knew he would I'd supplied. They won't think the same with bale.Bale is good but not on the level of Ronaldo not by a country mile
Bale can't score any more goals. He is not Ronaldo and it isn't going to change. But stay there, don't come back to England. Mourinho will ruin your talent and turn you into a 3rd rate Pogba wannabe. Maybe you can win another CL medal.
He will score more so will benzema but that won't be nearly enough to fill the void left by Ronaldo. Bale doesn't hit 30+ goals every season and I don't think he is good enough to replace Ronaldo as the main goal scorer.
Class player. Has to stay fit This is the big chance he has been waiting for and he needs to deliver and he will like he has in the big games This is why he was bought but Ronaldo is a machine and wouldn't let up
There isn’t a player in the Real squad, or a combination of players in the Real squad, that will fill the chasm left by Ronaldo. Watch next season as Real Madrid’s decline will underline how great Ronaldo actually was/is. The clear and undisputed g.o.a.t.End of.
Superb player who can now show his true quality without upsetting the brylcream boy.
I fear Bale will be the scapegoat when Real inevitably score 30 goals less this season - the fans, AS and Marca will round on him which is grossly unfair considering all his crucial winning goals, but that's how it is in Madrid
