MOST COMMENTED

Following his team’s 5-2 loss away to AS Monaco, Tottenham coach Andre Villas-Boas criticized Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti for going public with his desire to sign Spurs winger Gareth Bale. Real is looking to tie up a world record transfer for the Welshman, who also wants to join the Spanish giant.

Asked if Ancelotti acted improperly, AVB said, said: "I think so, in my opinion ... we are due some respect. These rumors of an imminent transfer are not true. The only thing we have communicated with Real Madrid is that he is our player and he is not for sale.”

Meanwhile, both Sky Sports and Marca are reporting that Bale is fuming about the way the situation is developing. The 24-year-old clearly wants to join Real, but Spurs is digging its heels in despite the Madrid club’s world record transfer offer. According to Marca, the player could soon go public with his discontent. The Sun claims his Spurs teammates have already said their goodbyes to the Welshman.
