Gareth Bale | The Entertainment Consultancy

Gareth Bale is a Welsh professional footballer who plays as a winger for La Liga club Real Madrid and the Wales national team. He began his professional career at Southampton, playing at left-back and earning acclaim as a free kick specialist. He moved to Tottenham Hotspur in 2007, for an eventual £7 million fee. During his time at Tottenham, managerial and tactical shifts saw him transform into a more attacking player. From the 2009–10 season, under the guidance of Harry Redknapp, he became an integral part of the team, rising to international attention during the 2010-11 UEFA Champions League. In 2013, he was transferred to Real Madrid for an undisclosed fee. 

He made his senior international debut for Wales in May 2006, becoming the youngest player at that point to represent Wales. He has since earned over 90 caps and scored 36 international goals, making him Wales' highest scorer of all time.
