Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is angry at reports in Spain that suggested that Gareth Bale had handed in a transfer request to force through a move to Real Madrid, Goal.com reports.
Marca reported yesterday that Bale had all but agreed a big money move to the Bernabeu but Spurs insist that the rumours are untrue and that Bale will remain with the North London club.
Spurs are furious that it appears that Madrid are ignoring their partnership agreement and are trying cause speculation by spreading rumours in the press.
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is desperate to land Bale this summer after seeing rivals Barcelona strengthen their side with Brazilian striker Neymar.
Reports suggest that the Spanish giants are saving up the funds raised from the sale of Gonzalo Higuain to make a huge bid for Bale, however Spurs still insist that the player isn’t for sale.
It is believed that Bale is quite happy to stay at White Hart Lane for at least another season, while several people close to the player, including Bale’s father, appear convinced that it is best for the Welsh winger to stay at Spurs, if only for one more season.
