Tottenham boss: Bale close to 'dream move'

Published Add your comment

Gareth Bale is on the verge of completing his dream move to Real Madrid, according to Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas.

"It could happen very, very soon," the Portuguese told reporters. "It's a dream move for him."

Villas-Boas added that Spurs are considering fining Bale for not turning up for training for two consecutive days.

"He is involved in a big transfer move to Real Madrid and in the end if it happens, we wish him all the best, but the fact that he hasn't turned up is not the correct behaviour,” he added. "That is the position they chose to take and it's up to the club to decide if it's a fineable offence.

"This [transfer] can happen in a different way ... [but] Tottenham will accept most likely the biggest transfer in world football."

Tottenham have stated that they won't sell the Welsh winger before they sign at least one player to replace the 24-year-old.

Talks are currently ongoing in London between Roma and Tottenham for the transfer of Argentine wonderkid Erik Lamela.

This time Roma are the ones who won't sell their star player before they have bought a replacement - this is most likely to be Adem Ljajic.

Villas-Boas is also hopeful of signing Hulk from Zenit St Petersburg, but manager Lucaino Spalletti said the Brazilian is not for sale.

With this summer's most frustrating transfer saga coming to an end, it looks like all parties will be happy.

Real Madrid will get Bale, Spurs will have Lamela and Roma will presumably buy Ljajic- the man who will start this transfer domino.
