Bale refuses to train
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.
