Gareth Bale

Gareth Bale's move from Tottenham to Real Madrid last summer has jumped to a record €109m after the Spanish giants agreed to pay eight millions extra should they win the Champions League, reports in Spain claim.

The world transfer record was smashed after weeks of protracted negotiations between Real Madrid president Florentino Perez and Daniel Levy, after which the Spanish giants agreed a record fee of £101m to secure Bale's services last summer.

And according to AS that amount has risen to €109 (£88m) as a clause in the £101m deal state included Tottenham will earn eight millions extra should Real won the European trophy in Bale's first season at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Bale helped Real clinch their 10th Champions League by scoring a crucial goal in extra time to put his side into the lead against Atletico Madrid before they cruised to a 4-1 win on Saturday.

Even though a number of injuries during the first part of the season hampered Bale's adaptation to La Liga, the most expensive footballer in history also scored the winner in the Copa del Rey victory over Barcelona earlier this season.

Having scored 22 goals in his debut season at the Santiago Bernabeu, manager Carlo Ancelotti believes the Welsh international will be even better next year.

"All season Gareth has been good and he will be better next year," said the Real boss.

Meanwhile, Bale himself expressed his happines for getting a "dream come true".

"When you're a little boy you dream of lifting the Champions League, and to lift the 10th one for Real Madrid is special. It's one that will go down in history," he said.

"We always were praying that we'd get a goal, and it was obviously great that we did. We left it late, but it made it that extra bit more special. It's the reason I joined Real Madrid to play in competitions like this and be able to win them. For me it is a dream come true."
