Unsettled Tottenham Hotspur playmaker Gareth Bale did show up for training with the north London club on Tuesday morning despite reports in the Spanish press suggesting that the Wales international would snub head coach Andre Villas-Boas in order to force through his protracted move to the Santiago Bernabeu this summer, says the Daily Mail.

The coveted wide man is currently at the centre of a transfer tug of war between his employers from north London and the Spanish giants, who have been attempting to sign the 24-year-old all summer long.

So far, los Blancos have lodged a world-record bid worth £87 million with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy for the Wales international, although as yet the two parties have still to come to any agreement over Bale’s move to the Spanish capital.

And according to reports in Spanish sports daily AS on Tuesday, the winger was so angry at Levy and Co for not accepting Madrid’s big-money offer for him that he intended to refuse to attend training with the club, with the paper even quoting Bale’s agent Jonathan Bartlett.

However, not only has Bartlett subsequently denied even speaking to AS, but the player himself did arrive on time for training at the club’s Enfield based training ground.

But the man who has scored 55 goals for Tottenham in 203 appearances in the capital looked far from happy though with the current proceedings on arrival.
