Modric to save Arsenal, Man Utd from Spurs' 'Ronaldo'

Croatian has urged Bale to join him at Real

Luka Modric is trying to lure his former Tottenham team-mate Gareth Bale to Real Madrid.

Bale has been the catalyst for Spurs's impressive recent form and the Wales winger is regularly linked with a move away from White Hart Lane.

Modric left Tottenham for the Bernabeu in a £30 million move this summer and has urged Bale to join him at the Spanish champions.

The Croatian, who played against Bale in Tuesday night's 2-0 World Cup qualifier victory over Wales, told BBC Radio Wales: “He should play for Real Madrid and I hope he’ll come.

“It would be amazing and I think he can.

“He’s a good enough player.”

Modric’s words echo those of countryman and former Real striker Davor Suker who said earlier this week that a switch to Madrid would be the “best move” of Bale’s career.

Bale signed a new Tottenham contract until 2015 but that does not end speculation suggesting the Cardiff-born player could leave London for a record transfer fee for a British player.

Spurs entered a partnership with Real Madrid this summer in which the two clubs will work together in respect of players, coaching and commercial relationships.

But the London club have denied the agreement allows Madrid to have first refusal on players such as Bale.

Bale's former Spurs manager Harry Redknapp feels Bale is in the same class as Real forward Cristiano Ronaldo and Barcelona playmaker Lionel Messi.
