After being sidelined for three months with an ankle injury, Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale looks all set to make his Real Madrid comeback on Saturday against Espanyol at the Santiago Bernabeu.
The Welsh winger missed out in making the Real Madrid line-up against Napoli in their Champions League match that they won 3-1 on Wednesday night.
Sources revealed that the Welsh wizard returned to full training last week as he was put through his paces at Real Madrid’s training ground.
Despite his three-month absence, the 27-year-old showed no signs of loss in sharpness as he was seen practicing his lethal finishing in a training video posted by Real Madrid’s social media team.
In one clip, he can be seen sharing a quick one-two with manager Zinedine Zidane before unleashing a venomous shot into the back of the net against Madrid’s youth team goalkeeper.

Bale has been sidelined since November after dislocating tendons in his ankle during Madrid’s 2-1 Champions League victory at Sporting Lisbon.
He went through an ankle surgery to cure the injury in London.
