Tottenham Hotspur boss Andre Villas-Boas suggests Gareth Bale's Real Madrid move is imminent
1:52pm Wednesday 28th August 2013 in Sport
Gareth Bale’s proposed world-record move to Real Madrid appears to be imminent after Andre Villas-Boas admitted the deal could happen ‘very soon’.
The 24 year-old attacker has failed to turn up to training with Spurs for the past two days as the parties attempt to conclude a deal.
Tottenham boss Villas-Boas has today admitted for the first time that Bale will move to Real Madrid before the transfer window closes on September 2.
"It's a dream move for him. This [transfer] can happen in a different way...[but] Tottenham will accept most likely the biggest transfer in world football,” the Portuguese told The Telegraph.
Villas-Boas did however condemn the former Southampton winger’s conduct over the last 48 hours.
"He is involved in a big transfer move to Real Madrid and in the end if it happens, we wish him all the best, but the fact that he hasn't turned up is not the correct behaviour," said Villas-Boas. "That is the position they [Bale and his agent] chose to take and it's up to the club to decide if it's a fineable offence."
