Reports: Bale, AVB Want Real Transfer Resolution

Gareth Bale left Tottenham’s training ground on Wednesday after telling coach Andre Villas-Boas that he wants to join Real Madrid. The 24-year-old was at the ground receiving treatment for an injury; Sky News reports that he took the opportunity to tell AVB that he wants to go to Spain.

Spurs, meanwhile, has yet to comment on the world record $130 million bid Real lodged for Bale several days ago. That means its stance remains that the Welshman is not for sale.

But that could change: AS reports that AVB has asked club chairman Daniel Levy to resolve the Bale situation as soon as possible. The Spurs coach wants to avoid a repeat of last summer’s protracted Luka Modric transfer to Real, which he believes had a negative affect on his squad’s start to the 2012/13 campaign.

Meanwhile, another AS report says that Modric could be used as a makeweight in a cash-plus-player deal for Bale, as AVB favors a return to White Hart Lane for the Croatian international.
