The Sun says former Chelsea ace Robben insists he will only join a club who are in the Champions League.
Robben has been strongly linked with a move to White Hart Lane after failing to secure a regular starting place at the Bernabeu.
And the Dutch star has slipped further down the pecking order with Cristiano Ronaldo and Kaka arriving this summer.
But Robben, 25, said: "With all the respect in the world, I have decided not to join Tottenham.
"I hope to achieve a lot with Real Madrid. The only thing I would consider is a move to another club in the Champions League."
