Andre Villas-Boas has revealed Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al Khelaifi is a close friend of his, but has insisted this relationship will not tempt him to leave his job at Tottenham for the Parc des Princes.

The Portuguese has been linked with PSG as Carlo Ancelotti edges towards Real Madrid, and the French champions were reported to have made an approach for Villas-Boas in their pursuit of a new manager.

Villas-Boas, however, has remained loyal to Spurs and intends to continue the work he has started at White Hart Lane, whole assuring the club's supporters that amicable terms with Al Khelaifi does not mean he will quit the club for PSG.

"I have had a friendship for some time with the president of PSG," Villas-Boas told A Bola.

"He is a friend and we speak regularly, but my commitment is with Tottenham.

"It was the club that allowed me to return to the Premier League and I feel good there."

Spurs, meanwhile, will reportedly remain firm this summer should any bids be made for Wales international Gareth Bale, who is being courted by Real Madrid.

Club chairman Daniel Levy, it is claimed, will not budge from his stance that Bale is not for sale, and would even reject a world record bid of £100 million from the Spanish giants.
