Gareth Bale is back practicing with the team, he may as well be the winter signing for Real Madrid

Madrid, Spain – Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale is back practicing with the rest of the team at Valdebebas alongside with Marcelo and Luka Modric who were all recovering from injuries, the club confirmed.

The Wales international had been out of action since November with ankle injury after Real’s 2-1 Champions League victory at Sporting Lisbon.

Last Tuesday, Merengue manager Zinedine Zidane said he would not rush Bale to return to action.

“Gareth is going to take a little longer (to return) but he is already training on the field with his boots and that is a good sign,” Zidane told the club website following Real’s 3-0 home win over Real Sociedad in La Liga on Sunday.

“We have to take it step by step and not rush him.”

The idea is to have him reach his max capacity for the eight round against Italian side Napoles in Champions League, however, there are hopes he can appear sooner.

Pepe, James, Modric and Marcelo have also joined the rest of the team during practices and are waiting for Dani Carvajal to be fully-recovered.
