He has won 17 titles with Madrid, including three Champions Leagues and four Spanish leagues. Time to go? He has five more years left on his contract and Florentino Perez wants to wait for his best version.

Real Madrid are planning to enter the market with Gareth Bale next summer as the Welshman is not being considered as someone to take over the baton from talisman Cristiano Ronaldo.

A home victory over Madrid would extend Real Sociedad's flawless record and keep it at the top of the league standings after four matches. The game against defending champion Real Madrid on Sunday gives the Basque club the ideal chance to prove its worth. "The most important thing is that we win the game, and get the points to climb the table".

The Spain global has impressed under Zinedine Zidane in the last 18 months and he scored 10 goals in 30 La Liga games last season.

He said the goal that put his team 2-1 up in extra time against Atletico in the 2014 Champions League final in Lisbon remained his best moment for the club.

"Our first goal is to enjoy every minute as much as possible", Real Sociedad coach Eusebio Sacristan said. "I will never forget it". He's not sharp and doesn't like the booing, but he'll have to get used to it because that's the Real Madrid fans, they're very demanding.

Bale also spoke about Wales' hopes of qualification for the 2018 World Cup, with Chris Coleman's side now second in Group D ahead of next month's final qualifiers away in Georgia and at home to Republic of Ireland.

"We hope to show that we are a good team and that we have interesting players".

"The World Cup is an enormous challenge for us", the Cardiff born player said. "We will fight until the end to qualify".
