Real Madrid captain Iker Casillas rates Gareth Bale among the best players in the world. Casillas was asked about Real's pursuit of the Tottenham star after Real's first training session in the US.

"We're talking about a player who is one of the three or four best in Europe and it is normal to talk about him because he has very good qualities," said Casillas.

"All operations are controversial for better or worse, but we speak of a decisive player and who is very good.

"Until the transfer window closes, you can be sure there will be some additions."
