Furious Bale bails out on Spurs

BALE-FRUSTRATEDLONDON, England, August 27- Real Madrid target Gareth Bale is understood to be frustrated by Tottenham’s handling of his proposed transfer to the Spanish outfit.

The Wales international was expected to meet up with his Spurs team-mates but he did not turn up and is unhappy with how the club are dealing with the situation, Sky sources understand.

Reports emerged over the Bank Holiday weekend suggesting Real Madrid were not the only club to make an approach for him, with Manchester United also linked with the player.

Bale himself now appears to be losing patience as the clock ticks down towards the close of the transfer window on September 2, with his world record £86m move to Madrid in the balance.

Following the goalless draw with Chelsea on Monday night, Moyes was asked if United is the club in question and the Scot responded with “no”.

However, with Moyes enduring a frustrating summer in the transfer market so far, it would be a surprise if United do not make any further moves before the transfer window closes next week.

Regarding possible interest in Bale, Moyes told Sky Sports: “I said at the start that Manchester United will always be interested in the best players and we’ll always be looking to try and improve the team.

“The owners have given me every opportunity to get who I want so we’ll continue to look for those players. It’s been tough in this window but we’re always looking at the best players.”

Despite being unable to break down a stubborn Chelsea defence at Old Trafford, Moyes remained upbeat having picked up four points from their opening two games in the Premier League.

“I thought we played well and I’m disappointed we didn’t get a goal,” he said. “Maybe we lacked a bit of cutting edge with our final pass and final cross.

“I thought Chelsea defended well when they had to. If anybody shaded the best chances, it was certainly us. We went with three centre forwards on the pitch and we wanted to try and win the game.

“We did everything we could and just lacked a ball to get Robin van Persie or Wayne Rooney the chance to score. You can play football in many ways.

“There’s nobody who says it has to be done one way. We went out there and tried to win but just couldn’t find that final pass.

“It could do with getting cleared up with what is and what isn’t a handball because the managers aren’t really sure. It was a big call in a big game like this.”
