Real Madrid president Florentino wants Spurs star Bale - and AVB

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is planning a hostile double raid on Tottenham.El Confidencial says with doubts over Jose Mourinho's future at Real persisting, Florentino has Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas under consideration as a replacement.

And the Real president believes a deal for AVB would strengthen his hand in the battle for the signature of Tottenham star Gareth Bale.

Perez is keen to set up a meeting with Villas-Boas early next month to sound out the Portuguese about his interest in moving to Madrid.

Any approach won't be welcomed by Spurs chairman Daniel Levy, but it's understood AVB is now the preference for Florentino ahead of the likes of Germany coach Joachim Low and Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.
