Midweek Sport - - SPORT - By JOHNNY FORD­HAM

GARTEH BALE has sen­sa­tion­ally agreed a six-year deal – worth in ex­cess of £8.5mil­lion a year – to join Real Madrid.

Span­ish pa­per Marca claim a world-record deal to take the Tot­ten­ham winger to the Bern­abeu is done.

That means the Spa­niards will have to shell out more than the £80mil­lion they paid Man United for Cris­tiano Ron­aldo in 2009.

The Welsh wizard has al­ready in­formed Spurs chair­man Daniel Levy that he wants to quit the club.

Bale’s agent, Jonathan Bar­nett, re­port­edly met Madrid of­fi­cials last month where they agreed terms on a deal worth around £200,000 a week.

And Bar­nett has been quoted as say­ing: “Have no doubts, Gareth has wanted to play for Madrid since he was a kid.”
