Gareth Bale has rocked Tottenham by telling chairman Daniel Levy he wants to join Real Madrid.

According to Spanish paper Marca Bale has accused Levy of broken promises after Spurs snubbed an offer from the La Liga giants.

It had been thought that Andre Villas-Boas could tempt the PFA Player of the Year into one more season in North London.

But Villas-Boas’ hopes have today been torn to shreds by the dramatic revelation that Bale wants out.
