Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has further increased speculation linking Tottenham star Gareth Bale with a move to Santiago Bernabue, insisting he was “was born to play” for the club.
The 23-year-old scored 21 Premier League goals last season as Spurs finished fifth in the Premier League, and he is expected to sign a new contract worth £130,000 at White Hart Lane this summer.
However, Bale’s agent, Jonathan Barnett, admitted on Wednesday that the attacker would consider any offer from the Liga giants.
Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata, meanwhile, has hailed Bale as “one of the best players in the world” and backed him to be a success if he joins the club.
“He would be a good signing for the club,” he told Marca. Bale is one of the best players in the world and at Real Madrid we always have the best. I am convinced that if the club want him he would be a great signing.”
