Luka Modric has become the latest Real Madrid player to urge Spurs star Gareth Bale to sign for the club this summer.
A former Spurs player himself, Modric told Marca that signing Bale would give Los Blancos another dimension.
“Bale would fit perfectly, we could really use him. He is the type of player who will help us take a step forward. He would give the team another dimension. His shot, his strength, his speed, his offensive power,” he stated.
Real Madrid have been strongly linked with the Welsh winger, who scored 26 goals in all appearances for Spurs last season. Media reports have suggested the club would be prepared to pay up to 100 million euros for the player.
Modric added in the interview with Marca that he didn’t want to talk too much about Bale’s situation out of respect for his old club.
“It is a complicated issue for me because I was with Tottenham. I can tell you we’re friends and he is an exceptional player. I guarantee it.
“And whether the club is Real Madrid, Tottenham or another, they can only win if they sign a player like that,” he stated.
