Cristiano Ronaldo and Bale ready to sign contract extensions

Real Madrid want to keep both of their stars.

Good news for Real Madrid, as the club is about to finalize new deals for Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale, who will see their contracts with the club extended until 2020 or even 2021.

It makes plenty of sense for Madrid to keep their attacking core intact and even though Cristiano Ronaldo will be in his mid-thirties when this new potential deal expires, it still seems that he has some good years of football left.

Bale, on the other hand, has played what arguably was his best season with the club. Not only he scored a good amount of goals, he was much more involved offensively as well and if he somehow manages to stay healthy for most of a season, he could be very hard to stop. Real's medical staff must take care of his muscles once and for all.

Real Madrid will most likely confirm the two deals after the Euro 2016.
