Real Madrid will be breathing a sigh of relief after finally getting the bulk of Gareth Bale's wages off their books this season.

The Welshman, who currently earns £600,000 per week before tax, has been burning a huge hole in Florentino Perez's pocket, especially since the Spanish club were getting very little in return for their huge investment.

According to AS, Bale ended up costing Real an eye-watering £21,638 for every minute he spent on the field last season, having been exiled to the bench by manager Zinedine Zidane.

In total, Bale played 1,260 minutes across 20 Real matches in all competitions - 27.5 per cent of the total the team played - scoring three goals and contributing two assists in another campaign plagued by injury.

Zidane and the club have their wish as Bale looks set to complete a sensational return to former club Tottenham on a season-long loan, where Real will subsidise a part of his wages.

It remains unclear what will happen after his loan at Spurs comes to an end, considering that his 'deal for life' at Real runs out in 2022, but that is problem for another day as far as Real are concerned.

Bale moved to the Spanish capital from Spurs for a then-world-record £86m in 2013 and had helped them to two of his four Champions League triumphs when he signed those new terms, scoring 50 league goals in 90 games for the club.
