AVB given Bale assurances by Spurs

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has reassured Andre Villas-Boas that the club won’t entertain offers for Gareth Bale this summer.

Bale, 23, has been publicly courted by Real Madrid following a Premier League season in which he scored 21 goals in 34 games helping Spurs to a fifth place finish.

However, they missed out on Champions League football, leading Real to publicly pursue the Wales international. But Villas-Boas is confident that his prized asset will remain at White Hart Lane for another campaign.

“The chairman said that we are not open to offers, whatever they are, and that the player will stay,” he is quoted as saying in Portuguese newspaper O Jogo.

“In football anything can happen, but these are the guarantees given to me.”

Villas-Boas’s close relationship with Bale is credited as one of the reasons why Bale is keen to extend his stay with Tottenham.

And the Portuguese has admitted that a conversation between the pair liberated Bale’s playing style on the pitch leading to his surge in form.

“There was a moment last season when he came to me because he was not comfortable out on the pitch,” he said.

“I do not know if it was my response or that he was glad to relieve the stress, but after that he became confident and played with freedom. He felt important and finished the year in style.”

Villas-Boas began his path to club management as one of Jose Mourinho’s backroom staff at Porto, Chelsea and Inter Milan. The two have grown apart but will meet again in the Premier League next season following Mourinho’s return to Chelsea, and Villas-Boas still holds his former boss in high regard.

He said: “Although we've grown apart, I think we are unified by professional respect.”
