Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric has said that he believes his former Tottenham teammate Gareth Bale would be a perfect fit in the Spanish capital, Sky Sports reports.

Modric, who was at Spurs with Bale up until last summer when he joined Real, hopes to see the Welsh winger follow him to the club after newly-elected Real president Florentino Perez made no secret of his desire to bring him to the Santiago Bernabeau.

An £80 million fee has been mooted as a possibility, and the diminutive Croatian believes that a move would be beneficial for all involved.

“It is a complicated issue for me because I was at Tottenham with him. I can tell you that we’re friends and that he is an exceptional player,” he said.

“A club like Real Madrid, Tottenham or anyone else can only benefit from having a player like that.

“If he signs or not is a matter for the clubs, but if he ends up at Real Madrid that can only be good for us.

“As Real Madrid is a team of stars, Bale would fit perfectly. He would give us a different dimension. He can shoot, has strength and speed and is the type of player who could help us take a step forward.
