Bale moved to Spain from Tottenham for a then world record £85 million move in 2013, winning two Champions League trophies since.
He has scored 50 La Liga goals in 90 games and has struck seven in this campaign. In total, he has claimed 62 goals and recorded 34 assists in 135 official games for the Spanish giants.

Madrid have been looking to tie down their leading players as they also fight a Fifa transfer ban for breaching rules governing the transfer and registration of players aged under 18.
