Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas confirmed today that Gareth Bale will be sold for a world-record transfer fee.

“This [transfer] can happen in a different way … [but] Tottenham will accept most likely the biggest transfer in world football.

“It could happen very very soon. It might not happen so soon so I suppose it could go to the last days or it cld happen in the next two.”

Villas-Boas admitted that Tottenham are in the final stages of drafting Bale’s contract with Real, stating “It’s a dream move for him.”

Despite the soon-to-be-finalized transfer being wrapped up, the Tottenham boss hasn’t been pleased by Bale’s behavior, where the Welshman has missed the past two days of training. Villas-Boas said:

“The fact that he [Bale] hasn’t turned up … I don’t think it’s the correct behavior.”
