Real Madrid have been boosted by the news Gareth Bale has returned to full training ahead of this weekend’s game against Levante. Bale picked up a knock in the 1-0 defeat away at Alaves before the international break, and despite meeting up with Wales, he did not play for Ryan Giggs’ side and returned to Madrid early.
The forward was said to be suffering from ‘muscle fatigue’ but he now appears to be over the issue as Real posted a video of him in full training on their twitter account.

Bale looked sharp on the clip, taken on Thursday, as he rounded goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois to slot the ball home and looks sure to play at the weekend.
The fully fit striker will come as a huge boost under-pressure boss Julen Lopetegui, who can ill afford any more slip ups following a disappointing start to the season.
After the clash with Levante on Saturday, Real will then play Viktoria Plzen in the Champions League three days later and it remains to be seen if Bale will play in both.
