The name Gareth Bale is one of the famous names in the European football. Playing for one of the biggest clubs in Europe and even the world at Large is one of the very big things that every well-meaning player wishes.

In all, Bale played 203 games for the ‘Spurs’ and scored 55 goals.

Finally in the latter half of 2013, he decided to join ‘Real Madrid.’ It was a six-year agreement, but the fee was not disclosed at the time. Speculations were ripe about the amount that ‘Real Madrid’ had paid for Bale, and finally in January 2016, it was revealed to be 100.8 million Euros, which was a world record at the time, surpassing Christiano Ronaldo’s 94 million.
