Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas has blasted Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric after urging Gareth Bale to make the move to Spain.

Villas-Boas says Modric is out of line - and insists there is no way Bale would walk out anyway.

The White Hart Lane boss said: "I think Modric should focus more on his club than ours.

"He has to worry about Real's game against Atletico Madrid and about getting in to the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

"Obviously Modric is aware of Gareth's performances because of his love for Tottenham and the fact that he is very connected with him and this football club, but it's completely impossible."
