By Betty Irabor (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Real Madrid could reunite their all-conquering front three of Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema next season, a prospect that has thrilled the Spanish press.
Ronaldo faces an uncertain future at Juventus, where they have crashed out of the Champions League in the last-16 stage and are languishing 10 points adrift of Serie A leaders Inter Milan. Reports in both Italy and Spain recently have suggested an offer in the region of £25million would bring Juventus to the table for talks.
Bale, meanwhile, is on loan at Tottenham but on Tuesday, speaking while on international duty with Wales, he surprisingly underlined his desire to return to Spain at the end of the season.
It means, according to Spanish publication AS on Wednesday, that Bale and Ronaldo could once again join forces with centre-forward Karim Benzema, who has been in strong form for Real this season, scoring 23 goals in 32 games in all competitions at the age of 33.
AS hailed the prospect with a headline that screamed: ‘Back to the future!’
Bale, Benzema and Cristiano (known as the BBC) spearheaded Real’s European charge under Zinedine Zidane, where they won the Champions League three years in a row from 2016 until 2018.
