Gareth Bale has been viewed as one of the up-and-coming young stars in the world of soccer for some time now, and there have been rumors that he could be changing clubs for the entirety of this summer.
Now, according to a report from Neil Ashton of The Daily Mail, Bale is free to join forces with Cristiano Ronaldo and company at Real.
“Gareth Bale is free to join Real Madrid after Tottenham agreed a world record £86million deal with the Spanish giants on Sunday night. Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy signed off the staggering move for the PFA Player of the Year following talks with directors in the boardroom at White Hart Lane. Bale’s transfer to Real beats the previous world record of £80m which Real paid to Manchester United for Cristiano Ronaldo in 2009.”
That number speaks for itself. The fact that Real would pay more than they did for Ronaldo says a lot about the quality that Bale plays with and the promise that he shows. At just 24 years of age, the Welsh footballer is set to have a long and successful career with one of the world’s best clubs.
It is expected that Bale will sign a six-year deal worth approximately €10m a year.
