Guti: I'd pick Bale & Ronaldo over Messi & Neymar

The former Spain and Real Madrid midfielder feels the Blancos duo are more dangerous than their Barcelona counterparts and has nothing but praise for the Wales international
Former Real Madrid midfielder Guti believes Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale are a better partnership than Barcelona duo Lionel Messi and Neymar.

Madrid paid Tottenham £86 million this summer to strengthen their squad with the Welshman, while Barcelona shelled out £48m for the Brazil international and Guti feels the Santiago Bernabeu side did the better piece of business.

"Ronaldo and Bale or Messi and Neymar? Ronaldo and Bale for me," Guti told reporters.

"They give you more options in games when things aren't going to plan. They're really fast."

The former Spain midfielder then went on to praise the world-record capture of Bale, and believes he is the best player los Blancos could have bought for the money.

"There weren't many players for sale at that price. Bale was the best and we're delighted that he has joined Real Madrid."
