Bale is good enough for Real Madrid, says former Tottenham team-mate Modric

The Croatian midfielder has expressed his admiration for the Welshman, insisting he is good enough to make the move from Spurs to the reigning Spanish champions
Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric has urged former Tottenham team mate Gareth Bale to join him at the Bernabeu, claiming the Welsh winger is good enough to play for the Spanish champions.

The 23-year-old has been a revelation for Spurs since being converted from a full-back by Harry Redknapp, attracting the attention of top clubs with several eye-catching displays.

And Modric, who was part of the Croatia side which inflicted a 2-0 defeat on Bale's Wales team on Tuesday night, feels the wideman is good enough to be reunited with him in La Liga.

"I agree [Bale] should play for Real Madrid and I hope he'll come", he told BBC Radio Wales.

"It would be amazing and I think he can [play for Real Madrid]. He's a good enough player."

Bale won the PFA Players' Player of the Year award for his performances during the 2010-11 campaign, which included netting a hat-trick at the San Siro against Inter.

Real Madrid have endured a difficult start to the current La Liga campaign and trail bitter rivals Barcelona by eight points after just seven games.
