Real Madrid legend Raul has questioned their pursuit of Tottenham star Gareth Bale. Real president Florentino Perez is willing to go to €100 million to bring Bale to Spain this month.

Raul, who is now with Al Sadd, was asked about the pursuit of Bale ahead of this week's Bernabeu Trophy appearance.

"Bale is a great player and he will be a great addition for Madrid, but his price is very high," said Raul.

On Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, he added: "Mourinho did well for Real Madrid. Now Carlo Ancelotti is in charge, one of the best coaches in the world, and he knows how to win titles."
