After the sacking of Rafa Benitez, many reported Real Madrid’s recording signing Gareth Bale could leave as well, as he was believed to be upset by the decision. However, he ended the season on a high, scoring 19 goals and providing 10 assists in the league, and also winning the Champions League.
The Welshman has continued his good run of form, and has been one of the standout players in Euro 2016, leading the scoring charts alongside his new teammate Alvaro Morata.
And according to the Daily Mail report, Real Madrid are set to reward him with new contract, and in the process, end all the possibility of his Premier League return.
Real Madrid want him to spend the best years of his career at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu by tying him down to a new seven-year contract, which will also make the forward one of the highest-paid players in the world, competing with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
The negotiations have reportedly been ongoing since January, and the Real Madrid board hope to settle it after Bale returns from the Euros.
The 26-year-old, who joined the Los Blancos in summer of 2013, is enjoying life in Madrid with his family, and it may play a big role in the star man penning down the long-term contract.
