Real Madrid have completed the transfer of Gareth Bale on a six-year deal, according to Spanish sports newspaper AS.

According to club sources, the Spanish club will pay Tottenham 84 million euros for the Wales international plus an extra seven million euros in add-ons - equivalent to £78m.

The price Madrid will pay for Bale falls short of the £84m they laid out for Cristiano Ronaldo in 2009, although neither Real Madrid nor Tottenham have disclosed the final price.
