Villas-Boas fears Spurs season disrupted by Bale saga

Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas fears the Gareth Bale transfer saga is affecting the dressing room.

The People says Real Madrid have offered a world record £86m for Bale, but White Hart Lane chairman Daniel Levy is holding out for £100m.

If it goes down to the wire, Spurs boss AVB is scared it will sabotage the team's Premier League start - like the tug of war over Luka Modric did last time around.

Midfield maestro Modric finally left for Real Madrid for £33m just days before the end-of-August deadline. But the affair cast a shadow over Tottenham's early season form - and ultimately cost them a Champions League place.
