Modric urges Spurs star to join Real Madrid

Luka Modric has urged Gareth Bale to swap Tottenham for Real Madrid, adding it would be ‘amazing’ to play alongside the Welshman once more.

Modric completed his protracted move to the Bernabeu for a fee believed to be around £34 million in August, having spent six years at White Hart Lane.

While the Croatian has struggled for game time with Madrid, Bale has been instrumental in Tottenham’s good form this season.

The Welsh winger has scored five goals in his last nine games for club and country, including a superb brace in Wales’ 2-1 win over Scotland last week.

That performance prompted Wales manager Chris Coleman to suggest the Spurs star could walk into any team in the world, while Davor Suker insisted he has more than enough ability to play in the white of Madrid after Wales’ 2-0 defeat against Croatia.

Former Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp also weighed into the debate yesterday by claiming that the Spurs winger is good enough to play for Barcelona or Real Madrid one day.

Now Modric has had his say on Bale’s future, and says he ‘hopes’ the winger will one day join him in Spain.

"I agree he should play for Real Madrid and I hope he'll come," he said.

He added: "It would be amazing and I think he can [play for Real Madrid]. He's a good enough player."

Bale has spoken of his desire to play abroad on numerous occasions in the past, although he recently signed a contract extension with Spurs that could keep him at White Hart Lane until 2016.
