At the close of the transfer window in the world of football (or soccer, depending on which continent you live on), it seems that Gareth Bale of Tottenham Hotspurs has received what he has been holding out for – a move to Real Madrid. Plenty of rumors and speculation surrounding the situation have been circulating all this while, but it seems that there has been no concrete information, although it was reported earlier today that Gareth Bale has made the switch to his current dream team for a possible world record transfer fee. EA Sports seemed to have been prepared for this particular occasion, where their latest trailer for FIFA 14 showed off Gareth Bale – not in a Spurs jersey, but in his new Real Madrid kit.
The 15-second clip saw the ex-Tottenham player appear from behind Real Madrid winger Cristiano Ronaldo, where the clip ended with the words, “It Just Got Real” that added further weight to this bit of news. Hopefully Bale will be able to flourish in the Spanish capital, as English players tend to perform differently abroad than when they were back home. It remains to be seen how Bale’s move would see a change in his position on the FIFA 14 cover of the UK edition.
