Real Madrid star Gareth Bale feels the Spanish Liga has surpassed the Premier League as the world's best competition.

Bale has welcomed new Real signing James Rodriguez to Spain this week.

"The Spanish League is the most exciting," the Welshman said.

"The world's top players play there. Barcelona or Real Madrid are always there near the Champions League final or winning it.

"The Premier League is a great league but we are attracting the best players to La Liga. It is great to be involved in it."

On Rodriguez, the Welshman added: "He has shown what quality he has in the World Cup and hopefully he can produce for Real Madrid what he did for Colombia.

"It's for the manager to decide what system we play and who plays.

"You need to perform well to keep your place. Everyone knows that."
