GARETH BALE will insist Real Madrid honour his mammoth pay packet while his future remains unresolved, according to reports.
The Welshman, who is on loan with Tottenham, still has a year left on his £600,000-a-week deal the Bernabeu.
Spurs are currently contributing half of his salary to have him in North London but are undecided whether to extend his loan.
Bale, 31, has only made three Premier League starts but showed glimpses of his best with two goals and an assist in the 4-0 win over Burnley on Sunday.
The four-time Champions League winner also has four goals and three assists in his last four appearances in all competitions.
According to the Mirror, Bale would not entertain the prospect of taking a wage reduction even if he agrees to another loan switch.
Zinedine Zidane’s side could hand him a huge pay-off to release him from his contract.
Bale has insisted that he won’t make a decision on his next move until the end of the current campaign.
Spurs boss Jose Mourinho heaped praise on Bale after his recent performances claiming he is finally getting up to speed.
He said: “Now he is better than ever. It’s not just the two goals, it’s about his physical performance. Now he’s not flat.”
It was welcomed even more by his Real paymasters, who now believe if Tottenham do not want him this summer, there is at least a chance another club will.
