Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti was asked about their pursuit of Tottenham star Gareth Bale in LA yesterday.

Ancelotti was reluctant to expand on Real's negotiations with Spurs.

"It is difficult to talk about Bale because he is not a Real Madrid player at present. I think the club is negotiating to try to find a solution and we will see what happens. I have never spoken to him. I do not usually talk to players who are not from my team and it would not be fair to do so," he said.
