Spurs sell Bale for record-breaking fee

Football News

Gareth Bale is one of the greatest players in the world, but Real Madrid have paid over the odds to land the young winger.

The Bernabeu outfit have tied down one of the hottest prospects in football on a long-term contract, but that's just it - they're buying potential.

He took the Premier League by storm last season but is yet to prove his true worth over a long period of time, not to mention his ongoing injury troubles.

Bale has struggled with injuries in his career to date, a problem that shows no sign of easing with the Welshman having been forced to withdraw from his home league debut due to a thigh strain.
