Ramos backs Bale bid

Sergio Ramos has given his backing to Real Madrid making a move for Tottenham Hotspur’s Gareth Bale this summer.

The Welshman has been linked with a move to the Santiago Bernabeu in recent months, with it speculated that Spurs are responding by trying to sign the 23-year-old to an improved contract.

For Madrid’s vice-captain, the prospect of his side picking up Bale is of interest.

“Gareth Bale is a Real Madrid-quality signing,” Ramos has told The Sun this week.

“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.”
