Florentino Perez eyes Gareth Bale to make free-kicks

Cristiano Ronaldo’s lack of effectiveness from free-kicks has not gone unnoticed by Real Madrid president Florentino Perez.

Perez wants Welshman Bale to take over the free-kick taking, as he revealed.

“You cannot sell Cristiano, he’s Madrid’s best player,” he was told.

“Yes, but Bale takes the free-kicks, not Cristiano,” Perez replied.
