Spanish giants Real Madrid have put all the blame on Tottenham Hotspur over the delay in Los Blancos being able to sign the Welsh winger for a world record £86 million.
Bale has been a no-show missing three days of training with Spurs, and is reported to be extremely angry over how Tottenham are handling his transfer.
Madrid’s disgruntled vice president Fernando Fernandez Tapias said: “I think it will happen but I cannot make any firm promises.
“We’re going to wait because they are dragging their feet. There are a few problems but I hope they will soon be resolved. We thought that he would be with us now but as of the moment, he is not a Real Madrid player although it looks likely that he will join us.”
“Even if Bale doesn’t come, we have a brilliant team,” Fernandez Tapias added.
“There is no doubting Bale’s class, but Real Madrid without Bale is a great Madrid, we have a team of warriors.”
Tottenham have already spent the Bale transfer money on a host of new signings including Erik Lamela who they signed from Roma yesterday, and should be worried if Real Madrid decide to pull out of the deal fed up with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy’s actions.
