A valuable new site called What Bale Earns keeps tabs on what Gareth Bale has earned since his move to Madrid.
Bale joined the Spanish club at 12.30pm this afternoon. Within 10 seconds of officially joining he had earned £5.60, enough to pay for his lunch, which was still a highly lucrative 29 minutes and 50 seconds away.
And his good day continued in that vein. As of one hour ago, Bale could already afford 50,000 Freddo Bars but this is already a violently out-of-date figure.
At the time of writing, exactly eight minutes before six o' clock, Bale has earned £12,549.83.
