One of the fastest footballers in the world, Welsh footballer Gareth Bale kicked off his career with Southampton at 16. Although he first joined Tottenham Hotspurs on a four-year deal in 2007, he left the team in 2013 for Real Madrid. Although the fee remained undisclosed for quite a while, reports later suggested he inked a world-record $120 million (reported as $132 million by the English press as compared to the Spanish press) deal, making the midfielder the world’s most expensive transfer. 

Now, he is on the verge of inking a deal with Tottenham Hotspur again — seven years after leaving the Premier League club! With the explosive reports, many football fans can't stop wondering if he will make another world record transfer. As per Forbes, Bale signed a contract extension with Real Madrid in 2016 through June 2022 that was worth up to $33 million in salary and bonus annually.

In February 2020, he launched his own company Ellevens Esports to compete in the FIFA eClub World Cup and in an April 2020 podcast, expressed his desire to join the Major League Soccer. As we wait for more information on his recent transfer, here's a look at his net worth.

What is his net worth?

Ranked #73 on the list of the world's highest-paid athletes earnings, Forbes reports his earnings to be $25.2 million as of May 22, 2020. The 31-year-old's source of wealth is listed as "soccer" — and is said to have earned $19.7 million as salary and $5.5 million from endorsements.

In 2019, a Guardian report claimed he will earn £150 million over the duration of his 2016 deal with Real Madrid once bonuses are accounted for. Rumors sparked that Los Blancos had made him the best-paid player in the world. Later, however, reports said that Madrid couldn't give him a pay rise without keeping Cristiano Ronaldo happy. 

Bale has trademarked his signature heart-shaped goal celebration and inked deals with Adidas, EA Sports, Lucozade, BT Sport, Nissan Motor, Konami and Foot Locker, as per a report from Essentially Sports. If the same report is to be believed, Bale has an estimated net worth of $165 million. However, the confirmed value is not known as Wealthy Gorilla reports his net worth to be roughly $125 million as of 2020.

A look at his business and lavish home

When it comes to personal businesses, Bale is a novice. To manage his own affairs, the footballer seems to have set up a company called Primesure Limited, as per Goal. With three shareholders, Bale and his parents have a 60-20-20 percent division. Bale grew up in a modest Cardiff home and reportedly, his parents still live there. 

Bale currently lives with his wife Emma Rhys-Jones and three kids in a splendid house in the posh La Finca neighborhood, home to Madrid's wealthiest. Set in the Pozuelo de Alarcón part, the luxurious house was reportedly rented by Real Madrid legend Kaka. Created by Joaquin Torres, it boasts of modern architecture and is worth approximately $8 million (£6.5 million). As per The Sun, Bale pays a monthly rent of £10,000 for the 1,500 square meter property. The two-storeyed house includes four bedrooms, an indoor pool, gym, two utility rooms, several terraces and porches, as well as a six-car garage.

Well, not just that, he also has some of the best cars — including a $200K (£165,000) Mercedes SLS AMG, a $197K (£152,000) Bentley Continental GT, a $202K (£156,000) Lamborghini Huracan, a $298K (£230,000) Ferrari GTC4Lusso and a $84K (£65,000) Audi Q7 50 TDI! Bale also believes in supporting social causes. As per the Goal report, he supported the 'For Luca' campaign and helped raise $1.9 million (£1.5 million) for a young boy's prosthetic legs who had suffered from severe meningitis. He also donated a signed Real Madrid shirt to help save a Cardiff scout group that needed $320K (£250,000) to buy its headquarters.
