Bale: Real Madrid want to win every trophy next season

The Welsh forward is eager for Carlo Ancelotti's side to become the first to defend the modern Champions League and is excited to contest the European Super Cup on home soil
Real Madrid star Gareth Bale has set his sights on a clean sweep of trophies in the 2014-15 season.

Los Blancos clinched the double last term after winning their 10th Champions League crown over rivals Atletico Madrid and lifting the Copa del Rey at Barcelona's expense, with Bale scoring a stunning winning goal.

Atletico claimed the domestic title, however, and the winger says that Madrid are desperate to win every trophy available in the coming campaign - beginning with the European Super Cup on the Wales star's home soil in August.

"We enter six competitions and we want to win every one," Bale told reporters. "That would be amazing. We are hungrier than ever.

"No team has retained the Champions League so we want to do that - and there is a special touch for me because the Super Cup [against Sevilla] is in my home town [Cardiff]. Hopefully we can do the job and get the trophy."

Madrid have signalled their intent to win more titles next season with the signings of World Cup-winner Toni Kroos and Colombia star James Rodriguez this summer.

With Uruguay international Luis Suarez having also joined Barcelona from Liverpool earlier this summer, Bale believes that the influx of some of football's best players to Spain shows the strength of the top flight in the country.

The forward enthused: "The Spanish league is the most exciting and the world's top players play there. Barcelona or Real Madrid are always there, near the Champions League final or winning it.

"The Premier League is a great league but we are attracting the best players to La Liga. It is great to be involved in it."
