Bale back fit & ready for Celta

Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale is edging back to full fitness after missing 20 days with a calf injury.

The Wales international missed Los Blancos’ friendly match with Paris Saint-Germain earlier this week, but Marca have confirmed that the former Tottenham man is in line for a start against Celta Vigo.

There were concerns that the 24-year-old would be out for most of January with the injury, but the sports daily has insisted that Bale has recovered from the calf tear and could make the XI for the game against the Celestes.

With this month’s fixture congestion however, Carlo Ancelotti may opt to leave Bale on the bench and go for Angel Di Maria instead.
