Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale insists he is happy at the Santiago Bernabeu and hopes to continue his association with the club for years to come.

The Wales international lifted his third Champions League trophy with Los Blancos on Saturday as they claimed a 4-1 victory over Juventus in Cardiff.

Bale had only recently returned from injury so had to settle for a cameo appearance from the bench with 77 minutes on the clock in his homeland.

The former Tottenham man has developed into one of Europe’s best during his time in Spain and reports have linked him with a move back to England.

However, Bale, who only signed a new deal running until 2022 in October, insists he is happy in Madrid and eager to win more silverware.

He told reporters: “We are winning trophies and I am happy. I have signed a long-term contract at Madrid.

“My family is happy and I am happy, so yes we will continue what we are doing.

“It’s the reason why I came to Real Madrid – to win trophies. We’re enjoying winning them at the moment, so we’ll continue to do so.

“Three Champions Leagues in four seasons isn’t too bad.”

The 27-year-old believes there is still a lot more to come from Real in the next few years as they continue to develop a young squad.

He added: “I think we can get better. We are still quite young as a whole team and we have a great squad.”
