Gareth Bale will sign for Real Madrid - Robbie Keane

Former Tottenham striker Robbie Keane thinks the "lure of Real Madrid" will prove too great for Gareth Bale.

The Welsh international is in advanced talks with the Spanish club and a deal is expected to be agreed later this week for a world record transfer fee of over £80m.

Keane, who left Tottenham for LA Galaxy in August 2011, says he does not blame Bale for wanting to move abroad to play football as he was in a similar situation when he joined Inter Milan in 2000.
