Former Real ace Laudrup admits he can understand why Bale's head would be turned by the chance to play for one of the biggest clubs in the world.
"Real are a massive club. I don't know if he will go as I only know what I've read in the papers here and in Spain because there's huge interest in him," he said.
"There are three or four clubs who say they are the biggest in world but Real Madrid are definitely one of them.
"Tottenham are a big club but Real Madrid is a step more in every aspect, they have won the Champions League nine times and I don't know how many league titles. There is a lot of pressure.
"You have to have quality as a player but you also have to cope with that pressure and not everyone can do that.
"He has technical ability to play there but let's see what happens. I think he's a great player and he's already shown that with a fantastic season for Tottenham last season.
"But we are reading about some big numbers and if they are true maybe in the end he will go."
