"Bale will be the world's greatest"

That's according to his agent.

Gareth Bale has started the 2015/2016 season in brilliant fashion for Real Madrid while leading Wales into almost securing a spot in next year's UEFA Euro Cup. Does this mean he's reached his ceiling as a player? Probably not, but he's still 26 years old and he has a very good chance to prove that he can lead Real Madrid in the upcoming years.

"Bale is in the world's greatest club and he will be the world's greatest player," said his agent days ago. "I never talk about the offers I get, but Real Madrid let us know that Bale is and will be their leader so we obviously wanted to stay with them," he added.

It seems that Bale enjoys playing behind the striker. That position gives him the freedom he needs to surprise the defenders, something he clearly needed last year. "The next few years will be very exciting for him. I don't think he will ever play elsewhere, though you never know. I really don't think he will return to England. For the moment he's very happy, he wants to win the Ballon D'Or and with Real Madrid he has a good chance," said his agent.

Now that Cristiano Ronaldo is going through a scoring drought, this is the perfect time for Bale to show that he has all the tools needed to become the Portuguese's heir in Real Madrid.
