Bale's folks become millionaires on back of Real Madrid move

Gareth Bale has made his parents instant millionaire's with his big-money move to Real Madrid.

The Welsh ace left Tottenham for a £85.3million transfer to the Spanish giants which allowed his folks, Frank and Deborah, to part with £1m each.

Bale gave his parents a 20% share of his company, Primesure Limited, which enabled them to pocket a hefty lump sum whilst the wing wizard also profited abundantly.

A Bale family source told the Mirror: "Gareth will never forget where he came from - he is loyal family boy. His family are his priority and since turning professional, has always ensured they are provided for.

"Gareth is incredibly grateful for all the sacrifices his parents made for him as a youngster, and wanted to thank them as best he could.

"Debbie was especially anxious about his move to Spain so it was imperative that she and Frank were looked after as part of the deal.

"They are now financially secure for life which is a huge relief for Gareth."
