AVB: Bale Staying at Spurs

In an interview with Marca, Tottenham coach Andre Villas-Boas, who recently snubbed the advances of Paris Saint-Germain, insists that Real Madrid target Gareth Bale will not be leaving White Hart Lane this summer. Bale has been repeatedly linked with a move to the La Liga giant since the end of the English Premier League season in which he won two player of the year awards, with club director Zinedine Zidane making several flattering public comments about the Welsh international. "We have the pledge of the chairman [David Levy] that Bale is not going to leave the club," Villas-Boas told the Real-supporting paper.

Meanwhile, Spurs is also looking to strengthen its team this summer, and to that end has hired Franco Baldini as its director of football where he will oversee transfers. AVB is hoping Baldini can help the club make at least one big-name signing, with Barca’s David Villa, Brazilians Leandro Damiao, Paulinho and Bernard all floated as possibilities.
