Real Madrid stars rally around Bale after home ground jeers

Madrid is seventh in the Spanish league standings after three matches, four points behind leaders Barcelona and Real Sociedad. The game against defending champion Real Madrid on Sunday gives the Basque club the flawless chance to prove its worth.

Toni Kroos also remarked: "We've given everything and no one deserves that, but this is Real Madrid and they want to see the best of each player".

A number of teams, including Barcelona and Bayern Munich, were linked with a move for the Spain worldwide as he entered the final year of his deal. Barcelona plays at Getafe on Saturday.

If Real does manage to get him sign a deal, then United could go in for Bale, whom they are chasing for quite sometime. Playmaker Xabi Prieto and forwards Willian Jose and Juanmi Jimenez have done well in the attacking side.

Real had a 3-0 Champions League victory over APOEL Nicosia.

Questioned whether Barcelona tried to sign him when his future at the club was uncertain, Isco confirmed: "It is true that maybe there was some contact but I was clear".

The 25-year-old is set to earn €6 million per season and has a staggering €700m release clause, according to reports in Spain. "I hope it's the last game of the season that we're without him". My intention was to be a success here with the team that took a chance on me.

Real Sociedad had a dominant squad in the late 1970s and 1980s, finishing in the top five in the league for four straight seasons, from 1979-82. This time it won at Celta Vigo, against Villarreal and at Deportivo La Coruna, significant results in hard venues and against teams expected to do well this season. We've not got Cristiano nor Benzema, but we will have other players and we'll do well.
