Gareth Bale: Turned up for work today

Gareth Bale has arrived at Tottenham's training ground.

The Wales international is a transfer target for Real Madrid and there had been reports in Spain that he would stay away from training today.

But Bale was driven into the Spurs complex in Enfield at 10.30 this morning.

Bale has not played for Spurs since their first game of the summer - a 1-1 draw against Swindon on July 16.

The forward, who scored a staggering 26 goals for Tottenham last year, missed the club's pre-season tour of Hong Kong because of a gluteal injury and did not travel to Monaco after suffering a foot problem.

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti revealed last week that the nine-time European champions were in talks with Spurs over the possible signing of Bale.

Having stumped up £33million to sign Luka Modric last summer after weeks of wrangling, Real know all too well how tough a negotiator Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is.

Spurs are said to be demanding a world-record sum in excess of the £80million fee the Spanish club paid Manchester United for Cristiano Ronaldo four years ago.
