Gareth Bale has reportedly told his Wales teammates that he will never wear the shirt of Tottenham Hotspur again in the future, according to the Sun.
The paper quoted a source of theirs in the Wales camp as saying, "Gareth is confused and bitter. He can't understand why Spurs have not agreed what would be the largest transfer fee in history.
"How could any player not be affected when he knows one of the world's biggest clubs has made a huge bid but that the deal isn't progressing? One thing's certain, he'll not play for Spurs again."
Bale is distraught with the north London side's refusal to entertain Madrid's proposals for the player despite Bale making his intentions clear as to which club he wants to represent in the upcoming season.
Real have pursued Bale for the whole summer but have yet to make a formal bid for the player. Yet, there have been endless speculation that the Madrid side are prepared to break the current transfer record in order to land the player.
But recent reports suggest that Madrid are cooling their interest in the player after Cristiano Ronaldo's apparent refusal to publicly endorse the signing last week and the club's fans questioning the need for such a huge outlay on a player who has just one spectacular season behind his name to boast of.
Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has also refused to comment on Bale instead opting to praise the club's youngsters.
"Why talk about Bale when Jese and Morata have both played so well?" Ancelotti said. "They are young but incredibly talented."
There have also been reports in Spain about questions being raised in the dressing room about Madrid president Florentino Perez's dogded pursuit of the Welsh star.
