Aim high, Gareth!

The soccer star is setting his sights on this performer.

Gareth Bale is due to marry his long-term girlfriend Emma Rhys-Jones in the spring of next year and if reports are to be believed, the pair are hoping to book Beyoncé for the night’s entertainment.

There’ll be no cover band at the Bale/Rhys-Jones wedding, instead, the Real Madrid star is hoping to hire one of the biggest names in music to perform on his big day.

The pair are expected to celebrate their nuptials in Italy next year, and the ‘Crazy In Love’ singer is top of the pair’s list for performers.

However, she won’t come cheap.

Beyoncé is believed to charge upwards of £1.5 million for a private appearance and we can’t imagine that would include more than a few songs.

Well, Bale and his representatives are said to be determined to make the performance happen, with money said to be no object.

Bale is currently earning £300,000 a week while playing with Real Madrid, so, in less than two months, he could make enough to get Queen Bae to his wedding and leave a hefty tip.

Can you imagine having your first dance to Beyoncé singing ‘Halo’?

Let’s see if he can make this happen.
