Gareth Bale has been urged to pursue his proposed move to Real Madrid by his Tottenham Hotspur teammate Iago Falque.

The Spanish giants could be close to agreeing a deal with Daniel Levy for the Wales international, speculation has grown amid reports suggesting the Spurs chairman will meet with Madrid president Florentino Perez this week to negotiate a record-breaking transfer.

Tottenham have been resilient in their attempts to hold onto the PFA Player of the Year for at least one more year, but talk of an offer which could exceed £100m could prove too tempting.

Falque, who spent the second-half of last season in Spain with La Liga outfit Almeria, believes the 24-year-old should be allowed to complete the move for the sake of his own future success.

"It will depend how he adapts, and other factors, but he has every attribute to triumph at Real Madrid," Falque was quoted as saying by the Evening Standard.

"He also has a lot of hunger because he still hasn't won the Ballon d'Or and players like him never lose their ambition."

The 23-year-old Falque, who has also spent time on loan with Southampton, added that a move to play alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, Mesut Ozil and Isco would suit the Welshman more than a move to the Nou Camp.

"I think Madrid is the right club for him because their style of play suits him perfectly, much more than Barcelona's would do.

"About two weeks ago he stopped training with the team because he is injured. I think his situation is not easy. It's clear that there is a great interest of Madrid."

Bale has not publicly revealed a desire to leave White Hart Lane this summer, although Carlo Ancelotti's comments last week suggested transfer talks were underway.

The Italian coach revealed his side were "negotiating and trying to find a solution to the situation", when quizzed about the club's interest in the Welshman, comments which frustrated Spurs' boss Andre-Villas Boas.

Ancelotti, whose side are in Miami for a clash against Chelsea on Wednesday night, has refused to add to the Bale speculation.

"I won't speak about Bale, because I have already angered him (Villas-Boas) and I don't want to anger another coach," Ancelotti said.
