In Cristiano Ronaldo’s absence from Real Madrid’s matches against Galatasaray and Valladolid in the Champions League and La Liga, Gareth Bale stepped it up and proved his worth by turning himself into the star of the squad.

Scoring 3 goals and providing the assist for the club’s match against Valladolid, Bale is demonstrating why Real Madrid offloaded the amount of money they did for the Welshman.

Contrary to their rivals Barcelona who failed to perform with the absence of their star player Lionel Messi, Real Madrid on the other hand has shown to be able to play without the Portuguese superstar C.Ronaldo.

The former Manchester United player is now fully recovered and is expected to play in Real Madrid’s next game which is a King’s Cup match against Olimpic de Xativa on Saturday. The Portuguese player usually sits on the sidelines on encounters such as this one but this is a great opportunity for him to get back to the sensational form he has been going through in this season and continue to rack up more goals.

Ronaldo said: “I am on good form. It’s possible that it is the best start to the season of my career but the past few years have also been very good.”

The star of Portugal and Real Madrid is also building a museum based on him which will be made in the place where he grew up and initiated his football career, Funchal. The opening day is scheduled to be on December 16th as the player wants to use the museum as a place to store all the memorabilia and stuff he collects as he travels around the world.

The museum will include all sorts of artefacts from his days as a Manchester United player.

When asked about what he thinks of the upcoming 2013 Ballon d’Or, Ronaldo said that he has already reserved a space for the trophy.
