Gareth Bale has signed for Real Madrid in a record breaking £85m deal, and sees the Welsh striker say goodbye to Tottenham Hot Spurs and hello to his dream club.

It has taken all summer to finalise the deal, but Real Madrid have been relentless in trying to acquire Gareth’s services and online betting punters would have been justified in staking their cash on the move eventually happening. The move will see the striker realise his boyhood dreams of playing for Real Madrid, and at the same time cashing in on a £300K per week pay packet for 6 years.

Gareth Bale joined Tottenham Hot Spurs in 2007 for a £10m fee from Southampton. He was originally seen as an attacking defender, playing left back, but quickly made a name for himself as a goal scorer. Last season for Tottenham, he scored 26 goals and was awarded the prestigious titles of Professional Footballers’ Association and Football Writers’ player of the year. The player is seen as one of the most talented stars natured by the English Premier League, with all the attributes to make him one of the most successful players on the world stage.

Carlo Ancelotti will be pleased with his fifth signing this season, and will go a long way in ensuring that Real madrid have as much as it takes to do battle with Barcelona for the league title. The move was not favoured by Spurs, but due to the Real Madrid and Gareth Bale’s willingness to move, there was not much in the end that Spurs could do, but to accept the generous deal for the player. The cash will be no doubt used in strengthening a squad, and to give the manager, Andre Villas-Boas, every chance to finish in the Top Four and break into the lucrative Champions League football.

The North London club has already spent £105, on seven signings this season, including Brazilian midfielder Paulinho, Soldado and Erik Lamela. Gareth Bale will be sorely missed by Spurs, but life goes on for Spurs and hopefully they will be able to give their supporters what they desperately crave for this season, a Top Four finish, Champions League football and bettering Arsenal at the end of the season!
