Bale, 23, has been linked with a move away from White Hart Lane after Spurs failed to qualify for next season's Champions League.

Despite giving his broadest hint yet on Wednesday that he is willing to stay at Tottenham, Bale has been backed by Real defender Ramos to move to the Bernabeu.

"Gareth Bale is a Real Madrid-quality signing," Ramos is quoted as saying the Sun. "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."
