Real Madrid defender Marcelo considers Gareth Bale to be a "great player", and says the Welsh forward would be a welcome addition to the Santiago Bernabeu.
Speculative reports suggest Real have offered £95million for the Tottenham star, who is the reigning PFA Young Player of the Season and FWA Footballer of the Year.
When quizzed on the transfer talk surrounding Bale, Marcelo revealed his admiration for the 24-year-old's talents.
Marcelo said: "I've played against him. He's a great player. But I don't know him that well.
"It's up to the club really. I'd rather not say who should or shouldn't be on the team.
"If you ask me about a player who is already here I'll answer you. But a player who is not yet in the team, I've got nothing to say.
"If he does come to Madrid he'll be welcome."
