Paulinho is urging Gareth Bale to resist Real Madrid and stay with Tottenham.

Paulinho, who arrived from Corinthians earlier this summer, admits that he is uncertain as to whether Bale will still be a part of Andre Villas Boas' squad this season.

"I sincerely don't know, but I think this is something more private for Bale, he doesn't tell me anything," he told Fox Sports Brazil.

"But I hope he continues with us, so that he can help us. He is a great player and achieved great stats last season, so I hope he stays with us."
