Bale was also asked if he saw his future at the club he joined from Tottenham in 2013.

Juventus looked the more adventurous side in the first 20 minutes but it was Real which struck first after the sort of trigonometric build-up that coaches write books about.

"I've signed a long-term contract at Madrid", Bale said. I'm a happy man to win the 12th and we'll enjoy this moment now.

The Portuguese forward scored twice as Real Madrid won the Champions League for the second season in a row by beating Juventus 4-1 on Saturday.

The Real coach said: "What's important is that he was with us". It is a long season but I am motivated.

"We know Manchester United are interested - they have been for years".

Real became the first team to win back-to-back Champions League titles in the tournaments history in getting their hands on the trophy for a third time in four years.

In the Champions League 2017 finale, Real Madrid defeated Juventus 4-1 and became the first team to win Europe's elite club tournament two years in a row. "It was an incredible feeling to lift that trophy here. Maybe we played the best second half in all the season, against a very good team who defends really focused and that has very good players in the attack", Cristiano said about the final.

"I've worked double sessions for three, four weeks to get myself ready for this and recover from the surgery". We won Serie A and the Coppa Italia and reached the Champions League final. And Bale believes the current team has taken its place among the great Real sides of the past.

Incombustible, he started off with a little flamenco to cheer everyone because there's no one better to understand the sacrifices one has to make to win a Champions League. We brought home two titles, doing something truly unique."A round of applause to you fans of the Old Lady, you were there, you always have been and always will be".

"It's been a tough year with a lot of football and the injuries, but the main thing for me is to get my ankle sorted and it give it that rest it needs".
