Real Madrid president Florentino Perez says Tottenham Hotspur's Gareth Bale was "born to play" for the Spanish club.
The 23-year-old scored 21 English Premier League goals during a stellar season that saw Spurs narrowly miss out on UEFA Champions League qualification, and he is expected to sign a new contract worth 130,000 pounds per week at White Hart Lane.
However, Bale's agent, Jonathan Barnett, said on Wednesday the forward would consider any offer from Real.
"Gareth Bale was born to play in Real Madrid," Perez told Cadena Cope.
Last week, Real Madrid's newly appointed director of football Zinedine Zidane ranked Wales international Bale alongside La Liga superstars Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
"I have been watching Tottenham for the very reason that Bale has been playing," he said.
"Aside from Ronaldo and Messi, who are the top players, I must admit that he is the footballer who impressed me most."
