Real Madrid would be able to meet Tottenham Hotspur’s asking price for Gareth Bale, according to former Los Blancos president Ramón Calderón.

The Wales international scored twice in Spurs’s 3-2 victory over West Ham United on Monday night, including a sensational 90th-minute winner.

The 23-year-old’s tally now stands at 15 goals in 23 Premier League appearances after having scored six goals in five successive league games, and prompting renewed speculation about Bale’s future.

The Southampton youth graduate was linked with a move to Barcelona and Real Madrid last summer, and Calderón believes that the nine-time European champions would be interested in signing the winger.

“He’s a fantastic player. He’s one of those players that you would always like to have in your team – no doubt,” Calderón told TalkSport.

“It’s true that Real Madrid have spent a lot of money in the last two or three years, but we are in a position to pay the money that Tottenham will ask for.

“Not any amount of money, there are always limits in a sense, but Real Madrid have a very healthy economic situation so I think they could sign him.”

If Bale joined Madrid, he would be following in the footsteps of his former Spurs team-mate Luka Modric who completed a £33m move to the Bernabeu last summer.
