Real Madrid have broken the world transfer record to sign Tottenham forward Gareth Bale.

The Wales star has agreed a £300,000 per week, six-year deal after sealing an £85.3-million move which eclipses the £80 million Real paid Manchester United for Cristiano Ronaldo in 2009.

Bale will have a medical and then be presented to the Real Madrid fans at the Bernabeu today before speaking at a media conference.

Bale joined Spurs as a left-back for £10 million from Southampton in 2007 and scored 26 goals last season as he was named both the Professional Footballers' Association's and Football Writers' player of the year.
