Real Madrid's Gareth Bale could be heading back to the Premier League according to reports

"Cristiano Ballon d'Or", he sang along with the fans as he was lifted into the air by his team-mates.

A few days earlier, they also got hold of the La Liga title, finishing three points above rivals Barcelona, meaning the Duodecima celebrations had to be big and nearly never-ending.

The team was first feted by Madrid's mayor and regional president before the players got on an open-top bus for a slow ride through throngs of supporters to a packed Cibeles square, Madrid's traditional gathering spot for celebrations.

Manager Zinedine Zidane praised his players after becoming the first manager to retain the European title since Arrigo Sacchi accomplished the feat with AC Milan in 1989 and 1990.

Cristiano Ronaldo stole the show in the Champions League final on Saturday night and, a day later at the Bernabéu, his six-year-old showed off some of his impressive ball-dribbling skills.

"Now we have to enjoy all of this", he said.

"If you had told me that I would have won all of this as a coach, I wouldn't have believed it", Zidane said.

One of Madrid's greatest players, Zidane was an assistant to Carlo Ancelotti when Madrid won the Champions League in 2014. "This is what we are here for".

Real Madrid is celebrating its 12th European Cup with its fans back in the Spanish capital. We are playing good teams as well, and we were clearly superior in the second half, and we won the game physically and with a certain determination.

Cristiano Ronaldo bagged twice and there were goals for Casemiro and Marco Asensio as they comfortably beat their opponents. "We promised to return and we have returned as champions", added Ramos as the squad visited the home of Madrid's local government and the city hall.

"My family is very happy and so am I. So yes we will continue what we are doing for over the years - play better football and win matches", he added.
