Carlo Ancelotti refuses to talk about a potential transfer for Tottenham's Gareth Bale as the Italian doesn't want to displease Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas.

Ancelotti's Madrid side are currently in Miami for a pre-season tournament, and the Italian refuses to speak to the media about a world-record breaking move for Welsh wizard Bale.

Ancelotti told Sky Sports: "I won't speak about Bale, because I have already angered him (Villas-Boas) and I don't want to anger another coach.

"I didn't say anything in particular and I prefer not to talk about this."

Tottenham director Sir Keith Mills has realised the club would find it hard to keep Bale against his own will if he wants to move to Spain, even though the Welsh international only signed a new four-year contract last summer.

The Spurs boss is adamant that the former Southampton starlet is not for sale, but Villas-Boas will realise like the Spurs director that keeping him against his will would be a losing battle.

The Spanish giants could well force through a move for a fee in excess of £80million.

Bale made his move to North London from the Saints back in 2007, and has been crucial part of the Spurs team over the past few years. The 24-year-old has made 146 appearances since joining Tottenham, scoring 42 goals.
