SALISBURY City midfielder Jake Thomson reckons former teammate Gareth Bale will fit into life alongside the Galàcticos after completing a record £85.3 million deal.
Thomson, who became friends with the world’s most expensive player while they were at Saints academy, thinks the Welshman will achieve big things in Spain.
“I’m sure he will be himself and enjoy life out there,” Thomson told talkSPORT on Monday.
“He’s such a joker and enjoys everything he does.
“His family are very close to him and that will make it easier. It was always his dream to play for Real Madrid and he idolises Cristiano Ronaldo. He’s his favourite player in the world.”
