Agent: No Bale offer from Real

Real Madrid are yet to make an offer for Tottenham midfielder Gareth Bale, his agent has claimed.

Bale, 23, has been linked with a move away from White Hart Lane after an outstanding season for the club which saw him score 21 goals in 34 Premier League games.

Real are thought to lead the chase for his services but following the appointment of Carlo Ancelotti as manager and the signing of Isco from Malaga they are yet to follow up the initial interest which club president Florentino Perez talked of in the Spanish press.

In an interview with Futboleros on Marca TV, Bale’s agent Jonathan Barnett has said that if a deal is to happen then the clubs will have to agree terms but at the moment the Wales international is set to return to Tottenham to take part in pre-season training next week.

“Bale has not said no, nor yes,” Barnett said. “There's no offer from Madrid; they have to talk between themselves and we will see what happens.

“He was at Malaga airport [on Tuesday], he's been in Marbella on holiday. He comes back to Tottenham for pre-season training next week.”

Speaking with Esquire magazine, Bale appeared to leave the door open for a future move to Spain by talking about his admiration of the Primera Division.

He said: "Every player would like to get as high as they can and try different things. It's something that the future holds and it's something that I'm very interested to try."
