Real Madrid No2 Zidane insists: We have 'very good' ­relationship with Tottenham

Real Madrid No2 Zinedine Zidane insists they have a good relationship with Tottenham, despite their battle over Gareth Bale.

Spurs are unhappy with Real's public pursuit of the Welsh ace.

But Zidane said: “We have not given up on Gareth Bale – it is impossible to give up a player of that quality.

“Of course Tottenham are doing the right thing by trying to get him to sign a new contract.

“We have made it clear he is a target, but Real Madrid have a very good ­relationship with Tottenham so we would make sure any approach is done in the correct way.

“It is ideal to get any new players in as early as possible so they can integrate with the team – but it is not always ­ possible and the best players are worth waiting for.”
