Former Real Madrid midfielder Guti believes Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale are a better partnership than Barcelona duo Lionel Messi and Neymar.
Madrid paid Tottenham 100 million euros this summer to strengthen their squad with the Welshman, while Barcelona shelled out 57 million euros for the Brazil international and Guti feels the Santiago Bernabeu side did the better piece of business.
"Ronaldo and Bale or Messi and Neymar? Ronaldo and Bale for me," Guti told reporters. "They give you more options in games when things aren't going to plan. They're really fast."
The former Spain midfielder then went on to praise the signing of Bale for 100 million euros from Tottenham.
"There weren't many players for sale at that price. Bale was the best and we're delighted that he has joined Real Madrid."
Bale made his official Madrid debut in last weekend's 2-2 Liga draw against Villarreal, scoring the Blancos first goal.
