Real Madrid GM Jose Angel Sanchez held talks with the agent of Tottenham star Gareth Bale on Tuesday, it has been revealed.

Cadena Cope says Bale's representative was in Madrid to meet with Sanchez a day before Carlo Ancelotti unveiled to local media as new Real coach.

Sanchez was informed that Bale was "delighted" by Real's continued pursuit and shown a picture of the Welsh ace in a Real Madrid shirt - as a child.
