"We allowed him two days off," Villas-Boas told reporters. "It's not the first time this has come up. We never force non-selected players to come to our games. I decided that last season.
"There is interest from Real Madrid. Whether the transfer will happen or not, hopefully you will have more news in the next couple of days but at the moment there is nothing I can tell you.
"Tomorrow is a day off. Tuesday is training so I would expect him to be there."
Bale is currently in Marbella.
