Gareth Bale demands wages of £750,000 a week in order to sign new deal with Real Madrid


Gareth Bale is thought to have recently agreed terms on a new six-year deal worth £525,000 a week before tax, but according to The Times , the Welshman is now seeking a further pay rise.

The new demand – equivalent to £39m a year before tax – would see the 27-year-old match the proposed new salary for teammate Cristiano Ronaldo, who is also in the process of negotiating fresh terms with the Spanish giants.


Bale’s new contract would come with a release clause of £420m, a move designed to repel continuing interest in the striker from the likes of Manchester United.
Barcelona maestro Lionel Messi is currently the world’s highest-paid footballer, with a salary of £18m a year after tax.
