Real Madrid duo Sergio Ramos and Iker Casillas believe that Tottenham winger Gareth Bale would be an excellent addition to the squad and they are both excited about the prospect of having one of the world's best within the ranks.

Reports have suggested that Madrid have made a formal £85million bid for the Spurs winger, which is £5m more than what they spent on Cristiano Ronaldo, and despite the silence at White Hart Lane, people in Spain and TV pundits are suggesting that it's time to accept the offer and let him leave.

Madrid have been in pursuit of Bale all summer and have seen two bids rejected already, but they are now getting serious with their offers and have offered Tottenham £85m for their star-asset.

Assistant manager Zinedine Zidane has openly spoken about the move and revealed that the club will not give up in their pursuit of the Welshman. He also believes Bale would be foolish to turn down a once-in-a-lifetime chance to join one of the greatest clubs in the world.

Now players, Sergio Ramos and Iker Casillas have spoken about the transfer saga and they both believe Bale would be a perfect fit.

Speaking on Real's US tour, Ramos said: "I think the mixing of veteran players as well as young players is a great philosophy.

"Not only as a team but in providing young people for some of us who have been here for so many years.

"Facing up to the challenges, and in that sense, those who are in a position to decide will leave us with our job to do.

"I think they have to work that out with (Real coach) Carlo Ancelotti, they must decide whether they need more players."

Madrid's goalkeeper, Iker Casillas added:"We are talking about one of the top three or four best players in Europe and it's normal that his name is being discussed."
