Real Madrid Sign Gareth Bale
4th September 2013
The Welsh winger has become the most expensive player of all time, at a cost of around £86m, and his new contract is reported to be a whopping £300,000-a-week. The big summer transfer saga had been going on for a number of months, with the majority of people expecting Bale to make the move to the Spanish capital. Real had to bid big to force the hand of Daniel Levy, and convince the Spurs’ Chairman to sell them their prized asset.
Not the main man, yet
After signing for his new club, Bale immediately let everybody know that he was fully aware that Christiano Ronaldo was still the main man at the club…
Obviously Cristiano Ronaldo for me is the best player in the world. He’s got everything as a footballer. And I’m going to be training with him and watching what he does and in games playing with him and learning off the best player.
Gareth Bale will wear the number 11 shirt in Madrid, and becomes just another of the many Real superstars.
