The 3rd Best UEFA Player of 2016, scored 19 goals while dishing out 10 assists in 23 league games for the Spanish capital last season. Bale is presently earning £180,000/week with Real Madrid.
Spanish giants, Real Madrid are pushing on extending superstar, Gareth Bale’s contract offering wages which are more than Neymar’s wages at Barcelona, in the process. This would also make the Welsh superstar, one of the three highest earning footballers in the world, if reports are to be believed.
The 11-time UCL winners will have to offer the Welshman a deal which will overtake Neymar’s new deal which he signed with FC Barcelona back in July, to wave off interest from French side, Paris Saint-Germain.
With Real Madrid banned to make any new signing for the next two transfer windows, the Spanish giants are pushing on extending the contracts of their present superstars, including Cristiano Ronaldo, Luka Modric and Toni Kroos. Reportedly, club President, Florentino Perez is prioritizing extending the contract of the Welsh winger, keeping him with the club for the next five years.
Gareth Bale will productively have to stay at the Spanish capital until the transfer ban on Real Madrid is lifted in January 2018, yet a new five-year contract would keep the 27-year-old Welshman stay at the club until he enters his thirties.
Even after the high wages in their new contracts, Bale and Neymar’s contact’s would still not overcome the wages given to Ronaldo and Messi, which nearly adds up to £17 million every season.
The 27-year-old has already made a brilliant start to the season scoring 4 goals and dishing 2 assists in 4 appearances with club and country.
