Tottenham Hotspur manager Andres Villas-Boas has revealed that talks are in progress between Gareth Bale and Spurs about a new contract for the forward.
As reported by Marca, Real Madrid are ready to make a world-record offer for the Welshman, who has also been linked with a move to Manchester United.
Meanwhile, Villas-Boas has already stressed the fact that the London club are not interested in selling Bale regardless of the size of the offer with the view of having him around for a much longer period.
“There was contact between the club and his agent last year and there is ongoing contact between the club and his agent,’ Villas-Boas said.
“Talks are ongoing but that doesn’t mean there is an agreement.”
Bale signed a new contract with Spurs in 2012, which keeps him with the White Hart Lane club until 2016 but that has not discouraged top clubs from queuing for the forward.
“We renewed his contract at the beginning of last season, if you remember, and it’s something that is being dealt with by the chairman and the agent.
“At the moment we’re confident that the player is under contract at Tottenham, as was done last year,” he continued.
“It’s something that we’re speaking about, but there aren’t any developments.”
After scoring 26 goals for Tottenham last season, the former Southampton winger has become one of the most sort after player in the Premier League.
