Only One Real Madrid Player Refused To Take A Pay Cut During Lockdown

Only One Real Madrid Player Refused To Take A Pay Cut During Lockdown

Gareth Bale was reportedly the only Real Madrid player that refused to take a pay cut earlier this year amid COVID-19.

The Spanish giants asked the players and staff to take a 10 per cent cut due to the global pandemic.

The entire first-team obliged other than Bale who was advised by his representatives to refuse the reduction on his staggering £500,000-a-week contract, according to widespread reports.

The Welshman, though, did give a huge donation to the Cardiff & Vale Health Charity.

He opted to donate to a charity in his native Wales rather than give money to his club.

If Bale had agreed to take a pay cut, he would have saved the club £50,000 a week.

Bale, 31, has endured a difficult spell in Spain despite steering his side to domestic and European success over the years.

He rejoined Tottenham on a season-long loan during the summer transfer window.
