Bale surpasses Ronaldo with new Real contract


Wales forward Gareth Bale has extended his contract with Spanish giants Real Madrid until 2022.

The 27-year-old arrived at the Bernabeu from Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur on a six-year deal in 2013 for a then world record fee of £85m.

He has helped Real win five trophies in the past three seasons, including the Champions League twice, and scored 62 goals in 135 appearances.

Midfielders Luka Modric and Toni Kroos have also signed new deals this month.

Bale’s contract is reportedly worth £600,000 per week, £350,000 after tax, more than teammate Cristiano Ronald’s current wage of £290,000.

The former Southampton player, who has formed an impressive attacking partnership with Ronaldo and France striker Karim Benzema, is due to speak to the media later today.

He scored the crucial second goal as Real ended a 12-year wait for their 10th European Cup with a 4-1 victory against Atletico Madrid in his debut season.

That came after his stunning solo goal clinched victory in the Copa del Rey final against Barcelona in the previous month.
