Relations between Tottenham and Gareth Bale have become increasingly strained over the closing days of the transfer window.
However, after his sale to Real Madrid, it seems there will be no grudge between Bale and the north London side.
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy admitted to Sky Sports News: "Gareth was a player we had absolutely no intention of selling as we look to build for the future."
This may have been the case, but with the clear interest from Real Madrid and the Welshman's desire to join the Spanish giants, a deal was completed for a world record fee that is believed to be around the £85million mark.
Levy then went on to say: "We wish Gareth all the best in the future and he will always be welcome at White Hart lane."
Andre Villas Boas then reiterated Tottenham's feeling towards Bale after the teams 1-0 defeat against Arsenal last weekend.
AVB said: "The player is an absolutely wonderful player, he has left us with some great memories from last season, which ever Tottenham fan cherishes, but he has moved on and we will move on as well."
Tottenham were unable to qualify for the Champions League, which may have been a big factor in Bale's move to Madrid. Bale will now be rubbing shoulder with players like Cristiano Ronaldo but Spurs have wished him the best of luck at his new club.
To try and compensate for the loss of their most dangerous attacker Spurs have surpassed the £100million in this summers transfer window.
