Sergio Ramos believes that should Gareth Bale ever decide to swap Tottenham Hotspur for Real Madrid, the Wales winger would fit in nicely at the Santiago Bernabeu, according to Sky
Bale has been strongly linked with a switch to La Liga, particularly after Spurs failed to qualify for next season’s Champions League, with Madrid often mentioned as a suitor for the former Southampton player. And Ramos feels that Bale would improve the Madrid side – but admits that if Bale were to leave Tottenham, competition for his signature would be fierce.
“Gareth Bale is a Real Madrid-quality signing,” Ramos said. “He has had an exceptional season. He can punish any team in the world and has the footballing qualities we look for in Madrid. I am sure Madrid will not be the only team that want to sign him – but he is the right mould for us.”
Bale scored his 26th league goal of the season on the final day of the campaign, netting the only goal of the game in Tottenham’s win over Sunderland. Spurs ended their first season under the management of Andre Villas-Boas in fifth place, a point behind Arsenal, who sealed their Champions League place by beating Newcastle.
Despite Ramos’ comments, however, it is thought Bale is moving towards signing a new contract at White Hart Lane, and has spoken in positive terms about next season. He said: “We fought hard this season, the team and the manager have been great.
“We have got the record points for the club in the Premier League. That would normally be enough to qualify for the Champions League, but it’s not meant to be again. It’s disappointing, but we will pick ourselves up again. We will just have to regroup this season and give it another go.”
