Andre Villas-Boas once again claimed that Gareth Bale is not going anywhere this summer – but Spanish paper Marca claim a deal to take the Welsh wizard to Real Madrid is done.

The Spanish paper claim that Real are closing in on a six year deal for Bale worth £8.5million a year.

Marca also claim that Bale has told Spurs chiefs that he wants to go to the Bernabeu.

Villas-Boas, speaking ahead of the Barclays Asia Trophy, once again ruled out the possibility of Bale leaving this summer but confirmed the club’s interest in Valencia striker Roberto Soldado.

At the press conference in Hong Kong this morning, Villas-Boas revealed that Bale will not feature in Wednesday’s game against Sunderland after picking up an injury in training.

The Spurs boss said: ‘I want to repeat what I was telling you last season and what I was telling you from the beginning of pre-season so I cannot extend myself.

‘He is a player that we are willing to continue to have, he’s a Tottenham player, he’s one of the most fantastic players in the world at the moment and we are counting on him for the future.

‘Unfortunately against Sunderland he won’t be fit to play, he’s recovering from a knock he had in training so we expect him hopefully to have some involvement in the second game.’
