Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti is delighted with their deal for Gareth Bale.

The former Tottenham star arrived for a world record fee.

"We have Bale, who has just arrived and is a very well-known player, so there's not much to add. He's an outstanding young footballer with a great desire to come here and play for Real Madrid, so he'll do very well." smiled Ancelotti.

"He's a very fast player who can take advantage of his great speed. He possesses great qualities in terms of ball control and shooting. He's a footballer with exceptional dynamism. He will undoubtedly do very well. I haven't spoken much with him because he had to head off with his national team. I welcomed him and I'll see him when he gets back."
