Gareth Bale is the highest earner in Real Madrid, and this explains why he is able to possess several expensive cars in his garage and is also able to afford his expensive mansion which he resides in. We bring you a collection of Gareth Bale’s cars and houses.
Gareth Bale was born to Welsh Parents Frank and Debbie Bale in Cardiff, Wales, on July 16,1989. His mother Debbie worked as a manager of operations while his father Frank was a school teacher. He schooled at Whitchurch High School in Cardiff where he participated in football, rugby and hockey. He became very popular in school as a result of his outstanding football skills which prompted his PE to restrain him to one-touch football since he was super fast, coupled with his dribbling prowess.
Gareth Bale’s football career began at Southampton, in 1999 where he joined the youth ranks of the English Premier League club. He initially started as a left back where he became a free specialist. He later moved to Tottenham Hotspur in 2007 having rose through the youth ranks to the first team where he made 40 appearances for the club.
While at Tottenham Hotspur, Bale developed into an integral part of the team and he was moved upfront to play as a winger, a position he excelled in as he later drew a lot of attention to himself during the 2010-2011 UEFA Champions League. He received several awards for his stellar performances at the club, including the PFA Players’ Player of the Year and the FWA Footballer of the Year as well as the Premier League Player of the season.
After an impressive career at Tottenham, Bale sealed a permanent move to Real Madrid on a record fee of £88 million which saw him surpass Cristiano Ronaldo as the most expensive player at that time. In his debut season at the club, Bale helped the Club to their Copa DEL Rey and UEFA Champions League victories. He also won the FIFA club world cup with the club, in that same season. He also helped the Club to win back to back UEFA Champions League titles and was also named the Competition’s men’s player of the year. He was later beset with series of injuries which made him fall down the pecking order. Bale was later sent out on loan to Tottenham where he revived his career, and after the departure of Zinedine Zidane, he was called back to the club where he has become a regular once again, under the new coach Ancelloti.
Internationally, Gareth Bale has represented the Wales national team as the captain and has so far featured 99 times for the national team.
