Missing out on the World Cup isn't so bad, after all. 

Gareth Bale, whose Welsh side won't be visiting Brazil this summer, is going to be paid rather well while the rest of his Real Madrid team-mates are off representing their respective countries. 

Per the Daily Mail, Bale will receive £2.5 million to go on a tour of Indonesia and Singapore and participate in a football festival, a charity event and a coaching clinic. 

"Bale is a world-class player," said Edwin Sutiono, the director of the Indonesian company Dua Kelinci who are forking out the cash for the visit.

"He has spare time so he can come here. Hopefully he will motivate young Indonesian footballers."
