Outside of club action, Bale has been an important part of the Welsh national team, leading them to good results at the Euro Cup and the World Cup. He has now scored more goals for his country than any other of his countrymen. Today, he is considered one of the most famous athletes in the world.
He was born on 16th July 1989 in Cardiff, Wales. While playing soccer at age nine years old, he was spotted by scouts from Southampton. His uncle is Chris Pike, a footballer who also played for Cardiff City in his time. During his high school years, Bale also played rugby, hockey, and track and field. His speed was so accurate even at this young age, and at fourteen years old he ran the 100-meter sprint in 11.4 seconds.
He had his debut for Southampton at the age of sixteen years old. He became the second-youngest to play for Southampton. He had an amazing start, scoring many goals and established himself as a free-kick specialist. By 2007, he got the attention of major clubs, such as Tottenham. That same year, he signed a four-year deal with the London club and continued to score goals in stunning fashion.
By the 2010-2011 season, he was scoring hat-tricks for Tottenham along with his first Champions League goal during this period. Apart from being interested in bigger clubs, he stayed at Tottenham. Unfortunately, his first season was majorly affected by injuries. One of his highlights was a winning goal against Barcelona in the 2014 Copa del Rey Final. Both Spanish fans and media eventually turned on him and was booed on several occasions.
For many years, he has been in a long-term relationship with his high school friend Emma Rhys-Jones. Their first child was born in 2012, second in 2016. In 2016, the couple became engaged. In 2018, they had a third child.
He received a $25 million ( INR 1,90.71 Cr) annual salary & earns an estimated $9 million ( INR 68.65 Cr) from endorsements. Between June 2017 and June 2018, he earned $35 million ( INR 2,66.99 Cr) from his salary plus endorsements. In 2013, he made a decision by trademarking his heart-shaped goal celebration along with his number-11 shirt for future official merchandise.
Some of his most remarkable brand endorsements have been with Adidas, Lucozade, EA Sports, and BT Sport. In 2014, he received 5 million pounds ( INR 50.31 Cr). Bale also made his fortune through his Instagram page. At $185,000 ( INR 1.41 Cr) per sponsored post, he is second only to David Beckham in this position.
In 2013, he was renting the former residence of renowned Brazilian footballer Kaka. The 1,500-square-meter apartment in the La Finca area west of Madrid. This was almost a temporary living space – seeing as he had just arrived in Spain that year.
Also in 2013, he cut ties with his English past by putting his Mansion in London up for sale. He put the five-bedroom property up for sale for 2.2 million pounds ( INR 22.13 Cr). In 2018, Gareth purchased a 250,000-pound ( INR 2.51 Cr) home for his future sister-in-law. This woman is the sister of wife -Jones. He then purchased a home in Cardiff for the single mother, and he also bought her a car.
After proving himself at Southampton, he moved to Tottenham in 2007 for a transfer fee of 7 million pounds ( INR 70.43 Cr). He transferred to Real Madrid in 2013 for a deal of 85.3 million pounds ( INR 8,59.00 Cr). At the time, this was the largest amount ever paid for a football player which also broke Cristiano Ronaldo‘s previous record who also signed for Real Madrid.
Years later, Bale signed a contract extension that kept him at the Bernabeu until 2022. This contract paid the Welsh striker $33 million ( INR 2,51.74 Cr) per year. After a series of conflict-ridden years at Real, he transferred back to Tottenham in 2020.
