Real Madrid haven’t been exactly the most active club in terms of transfers throughout the summer of 2016, aside from paying buying back Alvaro Morata from Juventus. That’s not usually the case for the Whites, who are quite famous for their habit of spending large amounts of money every year.
This time though, Madrid’s management has focused on retaining its key players and until now they have been doing a pretty fine job. According to the latest reports by Marca, the Whites and Gareth Bale have reached an agreement for a deal that will keep the Welshman at Santiago Bernabeu till 2021. The move is undoubtedly the right one, as the fast-paced winger showed what he is really made of last season, being one of Madrid’s best players all campaign long.
Bale will be receiving around 10 million euros per year, which makes him the joing second-best paid player alongside Sergio Ramos. Moreover, there are rumors that Real Madrid have also reached a deal with Cristiano Ronaldo for a contract extension, but the news will be released in September.
