Bale has featured in 227 times for Real, scoring 102 goals, since joining from Spurs for a then world record transfer fee of £85.3m in September 2013.

He has won four Champions Leagues, La Liga title, Copa del Rey, a Spanish Super Cup, three European Super Cups, and four FIFA Club World Cups amid his time in Spain.
