Madrid, March 6: Winger Gareth Bale is approaching the end of his second season at Real Madrid, but the world's most expensive footballer admits he still finds it surreal to be called a 'Galactico'. The Wales intertiol left Tottenham Hotspurs FC for the Spanish capital in September 2013, and has already won a Champions League, Copa del Rey, UEFA Super Cup and Club World Cup in the white of Los Blancos.
