THE world’s most expensive footballer has chosen the Costa del Sol to recover from a tiring season for Real Madrid.
Welshman Gareth Bale has been spending some down-time with friends in and around Marbella.
His pal Everton defender Phil Jagielka joined him for a round of golf at Finca Cortesin in Casares, rated the second best course in Spain.
Jagielka, 33, posted a photo of the pair on Instagram with the caption: “Great day on the course. Managed to seal the win on the last #fincacortesin.”
Bale, who cost Real Madrid 100 million euros two years ago, is rumoured to be partying in Sisu Boutique Hotel over the weekend.
He has been a controversial figure this season, drawing criticism from Madrid’s fans despite scoring 13 times in the league.
