Modric and Bale: Could they be team-mates at Real Madrid?

Modric and Bale: Could they be team-mates at Real Madrid?

Former Tottenham midfielder Modric moved to the Bernabeu at the start of the season, and he wants current Spurs star Bale to join him in the Spanish capital.

The 23-year-old Welshman scored in Tottenham's 2-1 win on Wednesday that lifted them into fifth in the table, but Modric says Bale dreams of winning the Champions League - something he can achieve if he moves to Madrid.

"We used to talk and I know he wants to play Champions League football every season and has a big dream of winning the Champions League," Modric said.

"Madrid would be a great club for him to achieve his dreams. I play with Ronaldo here at Madrid and the way he just runs with the ball with such confidence and defenders back off him is exactly the same as Gareth.

"To have them both in the same team would be unstoppable."

Bale signed a new four-year deal at Spurs in the summer but, as Modric himself proved, a player will eventually get his way if he wants to leave a club - and he says Spurs must become Champions League regulars to keep hold of their star man.

"Of course Spurs want to keep Bale - he is loved by the fans and it is easy to see why," Modric added. "But they must make Champions League football this season if he is to stay.

"If he decides to leave Spurs then every top club in Europe will want him. He is an intelligent guy and is open to new experiences. I know he sees the value in playing abroad, so when the time comes he will have a big decision to make.

"There is not a club in the world that would not want Gareth in their team. The way he plays scares defenders - and when he is in full flow there is no stopping him.

"It is not just that he has pace but he has the goals and creates goals to go with it. Already he is one of the best players in the world and he will only get better. There are some great players in the Premier League but for me Gareth is now the best and most dangerous."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
