Today, Gareth Bale has officially inked a contract extension that’ll keep him in a Real Madrid kit until June 30, 2022. Bale joined Madrid in 2013, after signing a six year deal worth £85 million GBP (approximately $104 million USD), a world record transfer fee at the time. Although the particulars around his extension have yet to be disclosed, The Guardian is reporting that Bale will earn approximately £350,000 GBP (approximately $429,000 USD) a week after taxes, more than the estimated £288,000 GBP (approximately $353,000 USD) Real pays Cristiano Ronaldo. Thus making him the “best-paid player in the world.”

Despite speculation that he could return to the Premier League, the contract extension ends any lingering doubt that Bale would remain in Spain. The 27-year-old has scored 50 goals in 90 league appearances, and helped Real raise five trophies during his three years at the club, including winning the Champions League in 2014 and 2016. This is surely a sign that Real considers Bale to be Ronaldo’s successor.
