Sergio Ramos believes Gareth Bale would be a superb signing for Real Madrid this summer.

The Tottenham star has been in sensational form this season and scored 31 goals for club and country.

His efforts, which weren't quite enough to help Spurs claim a Champions League spot, have reportedly attracted the interest of Real Madrid.

The Spanish giants look unlikely to get their man this summer, with reports suggesting the Welshman is ready to pen a new contract that would keep him at White Hart Lane for at least another season.

Real Madrid may still attempt to lure Bale to the Bernabeu this summer, and Ramos says the 23-year-old is good enough to shine for Los Blancos.

The defender told the Sun: "Gareth Bale is a Real Madrid-quality signing. 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.'

Bale hinted yesterday that he was happy to stay put this summer, saying he was looking forward to launching an assault on the top four next term.

"We fought hard this season, the team and the manager have been great,' he said.

'We have got the record points for the club in the Premier League.

'That would normally be enough to qualify for the Champions League, but it's not meant to be again.

'It's disappointing, but we will pick ourselves up again.

'We will just have to regroup this season and give it another go.'
