Modric: Bale good enough for Real

Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric has given his backing to a possible swoop for former Tottenham teammate Gareth Bale.

The duo played together at the North London club for four years before Modric got his move to the Bernabeu last summer, and the former Dinamo Zagreb man would like to see the Welsh winger follow suit.

“It would be amazing, and I think he could play for Real Madrid,” Modric told BBC Radio after being reunited with Bale in Croatia's 2-0 victory over Wales last night.

“He's a good enough player.”

Modric's quotes come in the wake of comments made by countryman and former Real striker Davor Suker, who said the move would be the best of Bale's career.
