Gareth Bale back in training.

Wales winger Gareth Bale looks on course to return to the Real Madrid side for their La Liga clash with Malaga on Saturday after he trained with the squad on Wednesday, the club announced.Gareth Bale has returned to full training with Real Madrid as he continues his recovery from a muscle injury, suggesting the Wales forward may play in Saturday's La Liga game at Mlaga.

Bale became the world's most costly player when he joined Madrid from Tottenham Hotspur for 86m in the close season but has been sidelined by a thigh strain.

Madrid's internationals were back training at the club's Valdebebas training ground on Wednesday and Bale came through a full session overseen by the coach, Carlo Ancelotti, the club said on their website,

"Ancelotti had the majority of the internationals at his disposal as well as Bale to prepare for the Mlaga game," Madrid said.

Bale's pre-season was disrupted by the drawn-out negotiations over his move and there has been a question mark over his fitness since the deal was concluded.

Madrid acted speedily to deny a report in "Marca" sports daily at the weekend that said Bale was suffering from a slipped disc and the club president, Florentino Prez, denounced the newspaper upon television.

"The player Gareth Bale has a little chronic disc bulge, which is extremely common among football players and by no means prevents him from carrying out his professional activity normally," the club said.

Real host Juventus in the Champions League next Wednesday before playing the La Liga leaders Barcelona upon 26 October.
