Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is furious over Real Madrid's sale of Mesut Ozil to Arsenal.

El Confidencial says Levy was stunned to discover the German midfielder was on his way to their north London rivals after being told he was not for sale by Real Madrid.

Levy called Real president Florentino Perez on Monday in an attempt to stop Ozil's transfer to Arsenal.

Levy felt betrayed after lengthy negotiations over Bale and a partnership agreement between Spurs and the Spanish giants that was agreed when Luka Modric left White Hart Lane.

But Perez politely informed Levy that the deal to sell Ozil to Arsenal was all but done.
