As one of Tottenham's best players, Bale's performances have earned him admirers from across Europe, with various media sources reporting the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona keeping tabs on the Welshman.
Bale's stock rose further when he recorded his first Premier League hat-trick against Aston Villa last weekend, and Spurs team-mate Sandro told the Daily Express that it was unfortunate he could not call upon the 23-year old in the Brazilian set-up.
"Bale is good enough to be a Brazilian. To have him in my team, I would like that," Sandro shared.
"But he was born in Wales – a shame."
The former Internacional player believed that Bale had all the qualities required to be a world-class player.
"I have played with good players, but Bale is one of the top, he’s one of the very best," Sandro declared.
"He has everything. He is comfortable with the ball, quick, clever. Bale is strong, too. He is so good."
Tottenham play Sunderland in a Premier League fixture this Saturday.
