Ancelotti insists Real Madrid strong enough without Bale

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti insists he's not desperate to add Tottenham star Gareth Bale to his squad. Ancelotti would undoubtedly welcome the recruitment of a player of Bale's quality, but insists he would be happy to start the new season with those already at his disposal if no agreement is reached.

"I'm very happy with the squad. We don't need any more players," said the Italian tactician.

"The important thing is to create a style of play that is comfortable for my players.

"Our objective is not only to win but to also play beautiful, attacking football."
