The Spurs chairman is unhappy with Real Madrid’s “arrogance” and will not sanction Bale’s transfer until Spurs have their replacements lined up.
Gareth Bale has been summoned back to England by Spurs chairman Daniel Levy, who has halted progress on the Welshman’s transfer to Real Madrid because he is unhappy at the Spanish clubs “arrogant” stance over the past few days, the Daily Mirror reports.
Levy is unhappy at Real Madrid for briefing the media ahead of Bale’s move to the Spanish club.
Madrid have erected a stage at the Santiago Bernabeu and were hoping to unveil Bale in it on Tuesday.
Bale has been in Marbella for the past couple of days waiting for his move to Madrid to go through but he has now been summoned back to London, where he will take part in training with his Tottenham team mates on Tuesday.
Tottenham are adamant that Bale’s transfer will be completed when they say so and they will not comply with Real Madrid’s timetable.
Levy wants to make sure he signs several new additions to Spurs squad before Bale’s transfer can go through, leaving Real Madrid sweating about when the deal will actually go through.
It was also revealed on Monday that Spurs are considering offers from other clubs for Bale, meaning Real Madrid may now have to work even harder to push through a deal for the Welshman.
