Tottenham winger Gareth Bale wants to move to Real Madrid, claims the Madrid press. Bale, 24, believes he has an understanding with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy that the club would accept a mind-blowing bid.

Marca claim Bale told Levy: "You made me a promise. You promised me if we didn't qualify for the Champions League and a good offer turned up you'd listen to it.

"Well that offer has arrived and I want to play for Real Madrid. So keep your word and negotiate."

Bale met Levy and made it clear he no longer saw his future at the Lane.

Spurs boss Andre Villas- Boas claimed ahead of today's game against South China that contract negotiations with the Welshman were 'ongoing'.

Yet Spanish sources claim no such talks have taken place since 2012.
