2. Gareth Bale | Value: £90m

Gareth Bale might only be the second-best player at Real Madrid, but he’s probably the most expensive.

The Wales international become the most expensive footballer in history last summer, when Real Madrid paid Tottenham £86m for his services.

Bale has enjoyed a very encouraging debut campaign with Los Blancos in La Liga. Twenty goals in 40 appearances means he’s still someway behind Cristiano Ronaldo, but he’s certainly on the right tracks.

Real Madrid aren’t about to let Bale goal, especially after his brilliant solo goal in the Copa del Rey final against Barcelona earlier this month. That goal confirmed the winger’s status as a proper Galactico - and added another few million pounds to his estimated value, which now stands at £90m.
