It seemed that after the transfer everything fell into place for the ex-Tottenham Hotspur winger.
In an recent interview Bale’s mum evaluated the move calling it a dream come true for her son.
“He is coping fabulously,” Bale’s mother told BBC Wales.
" [Cristiano] Ronaldo has been absolutely brilliant. He has helped him settle. You feel good and you start to play well and I think that is showing now.”
To underline what Ms Bale said: After some growing pains Gareth Bale seemed to have settled, in recording eight goals and six assists in seven games.
An unbelievable number which means that Bale is responsible for an average of two goals each match.
Bale’s mother might be right as she finished by stating:
“He’s living the dream, isn’t he?”
