The young Welsh star is earning the same from Real Madrid as longtime veteran Wayne Rooney gets from Manchester United: 300,000 pounds per week, which comes out to more than $26 million a year. Bale, who doesn’t look so unlike a certain famous retired pretty-boy British soccer star, has endorsement deals with Adidas, Lucozade and others.
