Reports in the Spanish press claim that Gareth Bale has agreed a six-year deal with Real Madrid - despite Tottenham steadfastly insisting their winger is not for sale at any price.

Sports daily Marca, which is well known for its close allegiance to Real, also claims that Bale will be paid 10m Euros a season and has already told Spurs he wants to leave.

However, this is in stark contrast to Andre Villas-Boas' stance - the Tottenham manager re-iterating the club's position as recently as Tuesday morning.

Speaking at a press conference in Hong Kong ahead of the Asia Trophy, Villas-Boas said: "On Gareth I want to repeat what I was telling you last season and what I was telling you from the beginning of pre-season so I cannot extend myself.

"He's a player that we are willing to continue to have, he's a Tottenham player, he's one of the most fantastic players in the world at the moment and we are counting on him for the future.

"Unfortunately against Sunderland (tomorrow) he won't be fit to play, he's recovering from a knock he had in training so we expect him hopefully to have some involvement in the second game."

Villas-Boas also announced that Danny Rose, who spent last season on loan at Sunderland, will be required at Tottenham when the new campaign begins.

"Danny has had an excellent season. He's one of the players that we all want for our future," Villas-Boas said.

"It was one of those occasions where it's all worked out extremely well for him and he will definitely be part of our squad this season.

"Credit to him for making it work. This year he'll want to be involved with Tottenham and hopefully he'll have a big future ahead of him."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
