Real Madrid ready to hand seven-year contract to Gareth Bale

Gareth Bale's summer will get even better when he returns to Real Madrid following the European Championships with the Daily Mail claiming he will be offered a 'contract for life'.

The 26-year-old has been one of the standout stars at Euro 2016 so far, scoring in each of Wales' group games to help them top Group B ahead of England. He also leads the goal-scoring charts along with Alvaro Morata.

It has been enough to convince Real Madrid chiefs that he is indeed the Galactico they hoped he would be when they agreed to pay £86m to sign him from Tottenham in 2013. They believe Bale will become the face of the club over the coming seasons, even overtaking Cristiano Ronaldo.

Indeed, the 31-year-old has, in comparison to Bale, had a nightmare during Portugal's Euro 2016 campaign. Not only has he failed to score in each of their opening two games but he has been heavily criticised for his disparaging comments towards Iceland.

It all leads to the fact that Bale will take precedence when the Los Blancos players return for pre-season training in July. Tying the Welshman down to a new contract is the priority of Florentino Perez who is even placing a deal over the proposed transfer of Paul Pogba.

The club president, who was the main instigator behind signing Bale in the first place, wants to hand the flying winger a seven-year deal that would not only keep him at the Bernabeu until his 33rd birthday but would also make him one of the highest-paid players in the world.

End game for Manchester United

It would also bring a virtual end to Manchester United's hopes of signing him. The Red Devils have been tracking Bale across three different managers with David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho all believed to have a desire to bring him to Old Trafford.

However, if this new deal is signed, Mourinho will have to accept he will never him in Manchester.
