Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas has told Manchester United to forget about trying for Gareth Bale this summer. There is talk of United focusing on Bale to boost incoming manager David Moyes' prospects.

But AVB has ruled out any chance of Bale joining Moyes this summer and said: "I'm pretty sure that whatever David does in the market will be excellent.

"But to get a player of Gareth's dimension is firstly not in our interests and also very, very difficult to get."
