Spurs stall on Gareth Bale deal

Real Madrid vice-president Fernando Fernandez Tapias remains hopeful an agreement over Gareth Bale will be reached but said there are “problems” as Tottenham Hotspur are dragging their feet over the deal.

Madrid had erected a stage at the Bernabeu and had seemingly expected to present the player there on Tuesday, but Bale -- who had been in Marbella over the weekend -- flew back to England on Monday.

Fernandez Tapias confirmed Madrid had expected the player to be available for Thursday night’s Trofeo Teresa Herrera friendly at Deportivo La Coruna, but he said Spurs were holding up the signing.

"There are problems, but I think it will all be straightened out,” he said in quotes carried by Marca. "We thought he'd be here [for the Deportivo friendly], but he hasn't even flown to Madrid yet, although it could still happen. I think it will happen, but I couldn't swear to it completely. We have to wait, because Spurs are stalling.”

AS reports that Bale could even be presented in mid-September should the deal be delayed until Monday, the final day of the transfer window, due to the fact he is set to join up with the Wales squad for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers.

In any case, Fernandez Tapias is confident that Madrid have a squad capable of a successful season even without their primary target.

“I have no doubt of Bale's ability but, without Bale, Real is still a force to be reckoned with,” he added. “We have an amazing team.”

It has been suggested that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is stalling on the deal until his club completes the signings of Roma winger Erik Lamela, Ajax midfielder Christian Eriksen and Steaua Bucharest defender Vlad Chiriches, who have all been undergoing medicals at White Hart Lane.

Spurs -- having seen Willian join Chelsea after undertaking a medical with Spurs -- do not appear in the mood to take any chances.

"At the moment I can't tell you anything because players can have medicals and they can end up in different places," head coach Andre Villas-Boas said after his side’s 3-0 victory over Dinamo Tblisi on Thursday night.

Villas-Boas, though, offered little insight into the current status of the Bale transfer.

“I have no idea,” he said. “The chairman is in control of the situation. Whatever happens happens."

Mesut Ozil, who has already said he has no plans to leave Madrid regardless of the Bale signing, told Bild he would be happy to see the Welshman arrive.

"We would welcome any reinforcement of the squad, so I have no problem with him coming," he said. "I am not going to leave just because there is more competition for places."
