Gareth Bale 'alleges' Tottenham are blocking transfer

The Welsh winger is furious with Tottenham blocking his dream of playing for Real Madrid after he was promised the transfer would be allowed to go through, according to Spanish paper Marca.

A verbal agreement was made between Daniel Levy and Gareth Bale prior to the end of last season, where Bale is believed to have been told he could leave if Spurs failed to qualify for the Champions League, and a substantial bid came in.

Marca are renowned for their closeness with Real Madrid and the reporting of what are usually well informed reports involving the Bernabeu side.

They have reported that Bale met with Levy for talks in London last Wednesday, before departing for their pre-season tour which started in the Barclays Asia Trophy - where Bale didn't play due to an apparent injury.

The Spanish paper claims Bale told the chairman, who had similar difficulties with Luka Modric and Madrid, that: "You made me a promise. You promised me if we didn't qualify for the Champions League and a good offer turned up you'd listen to it.

"Well that offer has arrived and I want to play for Real Madrid. So keep your word and negotiate.

"I'm not interested in Manchester United or any other club. I only want to play for Real Madrid."

The offer referred to is believed to be an opening £52 million bid from Madrid, according to ESPN, but this is not even close to Levy's valuation of the star.

However, fellow Spanish paper AS claims Daniel Levy would be happy to part ways with Bale if a bid worth £100 million was received.
