The Problem with Bale’s New Contract


Real Madrid want to offer to Gareth Bale a new contract. The Welshman deal with Los Blancos ends in 2019 and the idea is to renovate the contract until 2022. The agreement between the club and the player seemed closed but there are some issues that might put some problems in the negotiation.

According to the Spanish TV show ‘El chiringuito’, Gareth Bale’s agent wants a €17M year new deal for the Welshman and the club is not willing to raise his salary until that number. If Bale gets what he is asking for, the winger will earn much more than Sergio Ramos and Karim Benzema, currently earning around €10M.

Gareth Bale knows he is in one of his best moments in his career. After leading Real Madrid in the last months of the last season to win the Champions League and finish second in La Liga, the Welshman did an impressive Euro with Wales. He was able to reach the semifinals in the first appearance of his national team in the tournament.

All these records need to be paid, Gareth Bale’s agent thinks. The 27-year-old winger is still young but this could be the last huge contract in his career. If he is set to be the next star of Real Madrid when Cristiano Ronaldo leaves the club, Bale needs to be paid accordingly.

Besides, the footballer knows about the interest of Manchester United. The Red Devils have pointed out Bale as their star for the next years. However, at the moment, Mourinho’s side has failed to convince the player to change Madrid for Manchester.

Gareth Bale signed for Real Madrid three years ago from Tottenham Hotspur for a €100M record fee deal. In these three season, Bale won two Champions League trophies and one Copa del Rey among other trophies. He has scored 49 goals in La Liga in these three years and he is becoming one of the most important players in the squad. Will Florentino accept the terms and conditions of his new contract?
