Gareth Bale has said it is an “honour” to be linked with a move to Bayern Munich ahead of facing them in the Champions League semifinal first leg on Wednesday.
However on the morning of the match Bale said that he would consider an offer to join Bayern’s “fantastic squad” although “as of now” he was a Madrid player.
“You can never rule out anything in football,” Bale said. “Currently, I play football at Real Madrid and I enjoy that. Bayern have a fantastic squad and already in the past they have always been one of the most successful clubs in Europe. It’s an honour for everyone to be linked with this club. But as of now I am a Real Madrid player.”
“I think that an average of a goal every second match is not bad at all,” Bale said. “Still, there is always potential to develop further. This also applies to me. To be honest, I always want more. More games and more goals.”
Bayern striker Robert Lewandowski has often been linked with a move to Madrid, and Bale said the Poland international had the quality to be a success at the Bernabeu.
“[Lewandowski] certainly has what it takes for Real,” he said. “He’s one of the best strikers in the world, who has proved a recipe for goals both at Bayern and his national team.”
