Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti is tightlipped on a deal for Tottenham star Gareth Bale.

Bale is expected to sign after Spurs' North London derby clash today against Arsenal.

"When a player signs with a team he does it to help out and to make it better. That's why I believe that we all think that if a good player comes it's better for the team. Bale is a great player, but he's with Tottenham now," said Ancelotti.
