Spurs will be guaranteed a top-four finish and a return to Europe's elite competition if they win their remaining five Premier League games.

And, according to Villas-Boas, PFA Player of the Year contender Bale will resist offers from elsewhere if Champions League football is on offer at White Hart Lane.

"That's the information that I have from the club," the Tottenham manager said.

"The club is committed to keeping the best assets. That's the only way that we

can ensure that we are in the top four every year.

"Gareth is part of that project bearing in mind that he has been amazing this season. Hopefully we can develop him to a greater extent."

Bale signed a new long-term contract last summer, and recent newspaper reports claimed it would take a fee in excess of football's £80m transfer record to persuade Spurs to sell.

Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
