FC's Craig Burley and Dan Thomas debate what could be Gareth Bale's most crucial season at Real Madrid yet.

Former Real Madrid striker Emmanuel Adebayor has told BBC Sport he might have made a permanent move to the Santiago Bernabeu in the summer of 2011 if not for interference from members of his family.
