FOOTIE ace Gareth Bale is carrying on his efforts to copy Cristiano Ronaldo with a home equaliser.
The £86million star is set to move into a luxury villa on the same VIP estate as his hero – and it’s said to be almost identical to his Real Madrid team-mate’s pad.
Welshman Bale will have to fork out £10,000-a-month rent for the seven-bedroom mansion in celebs’ hideaway La Finca where Hollywood beauty Penelope Cruz also lives.

The 24-year-old midfielder fell in love with it during a visit with parents Frank and Deborah, his teenage sweetheart Emma Rhys-Jones and their baby daughter Alba.

It is described as the twin of Ronaldo’s nearby home on promotional brochures.
A source said: “Gareth has said he said he wants it and he’s already put a deposit down. It’s a virtual carbon copy of Ronaldo’s.
"The only real difference between the two will be the furniture.
“They’ll be able to invite each other round for dinner and still feel at home.”

Bale’s home choice home will fuel speculation he is morphing into Ronaldo, 28.
The former Spurs star, said to be earning £300,000 a week, copied Ronaldo’s look of a few years ago by wearing a back-to-front baseball cap and aviator-style sunglasses for his first Madrid training session.
Homes in La Finca, on the outskirts of the Spanish capital, are “perhaps the most select, exclusive and secure ­residential area in Spain”.
The pad Bale wants is valued at around £8million.
His girlfriend Emma, 23, was expected to stay in Britain with their daughter but has now agreed to move to Madrid.

Abbey Clancy's cheeky bum picture smacks of being too chuffed with your selfie

Something about people with no ­inhibitions makes me uneasy and suspicious. What are they trying to hide by not trying to hide anything?

The latest thing women are being told about our bodies is that we’re happiest with them naked at the age of 34.
Just like most of the other things we apparently think, this is nonsense.
Being comfortable naked is like being dead – you either are, or you aren’t, full stop.
It’s got nothing to do with your age, weight, nationality, lighting or how you feel about your body.
It’s in your soul, your DNA, however much you may try you’ll never really change it – you’re either just ­naturally happy in the buff, or mortified.
Sometimes I go to hot yoga with one of my friends.
After the class she goes to the changing room, strips off, showers and then strolls around slowly dressing, sometimes even chatting to other women while she gets ready, totally unselfconscious and at ease.
I, on the other hand, scurry straight home – purple-faced, drenched in sweat, with frizzy, insane Jedward hair – to the privacy of my own fully lockable bathroom.
The humiliation of being seen in this state, mid-scurry, is absolutely nothing compared with the horror of having a communal shower.
Even if I bumped into Ryan Gosling en route, I still wouldn’t regret it. (OK, I would – but that is the ONLY exception.)
My friend is far from the worst un-shy offender changing ­room-wise, too.
The last time (in both senses) I went in there, someone was standing in front of a mirror wearing just her bra – i.e. bottomless – languidly blow-drying her hair.
Someone else was ­liberally applying body moisturiser to every inch of herself, bending into positions far more advanced than we had in the class.
(For the record, neither woman was a size zero with a perfect bikini body, or whatever it is we’re meant to be trying to attain this month.)
Obviously, like most things, it’s better to be the one that I’m not.
It’s ­definitely far more healthy to be relaxed about being naked, to be carefree and unrepressed.
But still, something about people with no ­inhibitions like this makes me uneasy and suspicious.
What are they trying to hide by not trying to hide anything?
For example, this week Abbey Clancy sent a photo of herself in a transparent G-string to one of her friends.
Getting your kit off in front of each other in a changing room scenario when there’s no other option is bad enough – but actively making an effort to ensure that your friend has a proper good look at your bum?  That just smacks of being a little too chuffed with your selfie.
And it also makes me realise that I’m wasting my time being ashamed of being ashamed.
I’m actually perfectly happy wrestling underwear on while cowering behind a towel held in a vice-like grip if the alternative is being someone who texts pictures of her ‘arris to her associates.

I have a scar on his face, because as a child I fell off my bike . I accepted the fact that one of my weaknesses is the weight, especially after having grown up with Venus, which is so tall and thin and looks like a model. Instead I'm all hips and curves. wanted to be like her, I wanted to be lean, but it was not me. And so, I had to learn to walk around with the huge tits.'m big, and I like that. I think it's important for girls to be curvy self-confident. "
