Bale re­fuses to train

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

GARETH BALE skipped train­ing yes­ter­day as he at­tempted to force through his world-record move to Real Madrid.

The Spurs man is be­com­ing frus­trated at be­ing left in the mid­dle of the long-stand­ing trans­fer saga and has now played his trump card by re­fus­ing to pitch up to train­ing.

The 24-year-old flew out to Mar­bella in Spain late last week as he was hop­ing to fi­nalise his move to La Liga over the week­end.

But Spurs chair­man Daniel Levy is at­tempt­ing to squeeze ev­ery last penny out of Real by mak­ing them sweat as ru­mours of a Manch­ester United bid be­gin to hot up.

Levy is hop­ing to pocket more than £90mil­lion when they even­tu­ally let him go.
