Gareth Bale Gives Tottenham Silent Treatment as Welsh International Pushes for Real Madrid Move

Disgruntled Welshman cannot believe Levy will not sanction his exit from the Lane. 

Check in to Transfer Window: Done Deal Alerts

Tottenham Hotspur head coach Andre Villas-Boas has revealed that wantaway playmaker Gareth Bale is refusing to even speak about his future at White Hart Lane as the Welshman attempts to force through his much-publicised move to Real Madrid this summer, according to reports in the Daily Mirror.

The 24-year-old’s Tottenham future has been open to debate ever since the end of the previous campaign, with the Spanish giants having been closely monitoring the wide man with a view to bringing Bale to the Santiago Bernabeu next season.

However, so far no deal has been reached between los Blancos and their counterparts from north London, despite weeks of negotiations between Madrid president Florentino Perez and Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy.

And Bale’s boss at the Lane has now spoken about how the Wales international, who scored an eye-catching 26 goals in just 44 matches in all competitions for Spurs last season, is giving him and the rest of the squad the silent treatment about his future in the capital.

“His mental state nobody knows, because the player doesn’t speak,” said Villas-Boas.

“The only thing that we are able to see is the player arriving in and out of the training ground. It’s fine.”

But there has now reportedly been a breakthrough in talks between the two parties, with Madrid prepared to pay Tottenham the world-record transfer fee in four instalments, as well as including left-back Fabio Coentrao as part of the deal, while Bale will be handed a six-year deal worth £180,000 per week.
