Metro have reported that Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas is furious with the way Real Madrid have chased his star man Gareth Bale this summer.
Bale of course has been linked with a move to the Spanish club and both AVB and Daniel Levy have been trying their utmost to keep the player at White Hart Lane.
Spanish publication Marca have basically waged their own war to get the player to join the Bernabeu club and former manager Jose Mourinho has noted that he wanted Bale a year ago.
Now Florentino Perez and Carlo Ancelotti have been attacked by the Spurs manager who spoke after the 5-2 pre-season defeat to Monaco and noted: “Carlo is a person I appreciate a lot and we have great respect for each other, but bearing in mind this situation they have decided to make it public.
“Normally in situations like this it is scrutinised by the Football Association with lots of care and attention.
“We have seen lots of people speak about a player that is not theirs and we are due some respect.
“These rumours of an imminent transfer are not true. The only thing we have communicated with Real Madrid is that he is our player and he is not for sale.
“Gareth is a guy I really like. We are talking with Real Madrid because there is respect between the two clubs following the transfer last season of Luka Modric.
“We are building a great team for next season. We envisage the future with Gareth. But we know that in football anything is possible.”
