Gareth Bale Salary Revealed

By Abhinandan Lawati

Gareth Bale is one of the many Galacticos at Real Madrid. The Welsh footballer has certainly come a long way since making his debut for Southampton. His time in Tottenham Hotspur helped him transform into an attacking beast.

The man reached the pinnacle of his Tottenham career when he received the PFA young Player of the Year and FWA Footballer of the Year Award in 2013. Real Madrid quickly took notice of his phenomenal talents and purchased him for a fee reported to be $130 million. The Spanish media has rubbished those claims though, stating the fee to be more in the region of $117 million. 

Listed below is Gareth Bale’s salary history

A lot of sponsorship doors opened for him when he made the leap to Real Madrid. Bale’s famous heart celebration, along with the star, made appearances on the British, Irish, and Middle Eastern covers of FIFA 14. He shared the honor of sharing the cover with superstar, Lionel Messi. Major companies have paid ludicrous amount of money to bank on the star’s popularity and reach; some of the brands Bale endorses are Adidas, Lucozade, EA Sports, and BT Sport etc. The footballer reportedly cashes in $13 million annually from his sponsorship deals.

Adidas truly put him on the pedestal when they made him the first player to wear their Adidas F50 crazylight football boots. Bale currently resides in a mansion owned by former Real Madrid player Kaka. It has been reported that the speedster pays Kaka a monthly rent of $16,000 for accommodation. It is certainly a small price to pay if you take his overall earnings into consideration.
