Real Madrid star Bale joins adidas 'elite' with new £20M contract

The money keeps rolling in for Real Madrid star Gareth Bale.

The Daily Mail says Bale is understood to have agreed a £20million, six-year extension to his adidas contract that will cover his boots and personal sponsorship.

Adidas, who have had Bale on their books since he was 16, say they have been in talks with the Wales star's advisers since he joined Madrid last summer for a world-record £86m.

Bale, who is paid about £300,000 a week by his Spanish club, has joined Lionel Messi, Neymar, Robin van Persie and Arjen Robben among the adidas group of elite footballers, despite not going to the World Cup.
