Tottenham chiefs are fuming over Real Madrid's tactics in their pursuit of Gareth Bale.

The Daily Star says sources close to Bale insist he has NOT asked for a transfer OR agreed terms with Real - contrary to several reports this week from the Spanish giants.

And Spurs are so determined to keep him they have even issued a written hands-off warning to Madrid refusing to negotiate under any circumstances.

A club insider said last night: "We've made our position clear. It won't change. We have no interest in entertaining bids."
