Gareth Bale switch to Real Madrid would suit the Tottenham forward, declares Sergio Ramos
There has been considerable speculation about the future of the Wales international

Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos believes Gareth Bale would be right at home at the Bernabeu.
There has been considerable speculation about the future of the Wales international after Tottenham failed to qualify for the Champions League, with Madrid the most likely destination.
Quoted in the Sun, Ramos said: "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 rounded off a remarkable year on Sunday by scoring his 26th goal of the season, but his wonder winner against Sunderland was not enough to earn the club Champions League qualification.
The club are understandably keen to hold on to their star man and manager Andre Villas-Boas recently called on the forward to end speculation about his future by signing a new deal at White Hart Lane.
For now, the signs look promising for Tottenham fans. From his comments in the immediate aftermath of the victory over Sunderland, he seemed in no mood to abandon ship and head to Madrid.
"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."
