Real Madrid are ready to drop hopes of signing Tottenham star Gareth Bale.

Marca says Spurs have knocked back Real's most recent advances and president Florentino Perez now sees signing Bale as impossible.

Real lured Luka Modric across to Spain from White Hart Lane last year and they were hopeful of doing the same with Bale.

But unlike Modric, the 23-year-old ace has done nothing to force through a deal.

There is no release clause in Bale's contract and he will not be handing a transfer request.
