QPR manager Harry Redknapp said today he is "sure" Gareth Bale will move to Real Madrid for a reported 99 million Euros (around £85 million), the most expensive football deal ever completed.
The Rangers boss said Bale would settle in well in Spain. "You couldn't meet a nicer fella", he said, "he's a level-headed boy and he'll go out here and he'll enjoy it".
However, he said despite the loss of Bale, Spurs are now more than ever contenders to win the League, having brought in some "fantastic" new players.
He also expressed a few concerns ahead QPR's match with Bolton Wanderers tomorrow. Of particular concern is Junior Hoilett's recent hamstring injury, which he said would be a "big blow" for the squad.
He also said the club are still on the hunt for new players: "I always felt the hardest part would be shifting people rather than getting people in. But they've managed to do that, and we've bought a few in, and we're still looking to strengthen as we can."
