Tottenham ace Gareth Bale makes Real Madrid contract demand

Tottenham ace Gareth Bale intends to dig in his heels over the final year of his Real Madrid contract.

The Mirror says Bale will tell Real Madrid he expects them to honour his mega salary even if he leaves this summer.

Welsh superstar Bale is back in form after scoring twice in Spurs' 4-0 win over Burnley.

The attacking ace is on a season-long loan from Madrid who are splitting his £600,000-a-week contract with Tottenham paying half.

Bale, 31, is open to staying in North London next season when he will be in the final 12 months of his contract in Madrid.

But the star is not planning to make a decision on his future until the end of the domestic season.

And Bale will refuse to take a pay-cut in the final year of his deal with the Spanish club.
