"We are all very excited, we weren't necessarily expecting it but transfer windows have the added excitement that you never know what's going to happen so it's definitely exciting to have someone of Bale's calibre and we are excited to welcome him to Los Angeles.
"I think a player of Gareth Bale's gravity speaks for itself, he's played for the biggest teams, he's a current Champions League winner, he's won it five times, he's played in the biggest games, and he's delivered in the biggest games.
