Real Madrid ambassador Zinedine Zidane believes Gareth Bale is among the top three players in the world and "more than good enough" for the Spanish giants.

Having missed out on Champions League qualification, Tottenham face an anxious summer as they wait to discover whether Bale will sign a new contract with them or move on to one of Europe's top clubs.

Zidane ranked the Welshman in the same bracket as Real's own star player Cristiano Ronaldo and Barcelona's Lionel Messi. Zidane told reporters: "I've been watching Tottenham because Gareth Bale has been playing there. Aside from Ronaldo and Messi, he is the player who has impressed me the most in the world. He is outstanding."

He added: "What has particularly impressed me is that he is consistent. It's not just been in one or two matches.

"He is consistently scoring spectacular goals and very important goals. He is very quick, skilful and exciting.

"Of course all the talented players like that can come to Real Madrid. Is he good enough for Real Madrid? Of course. He is more than good enough to play for Real Madrid."
