Real Madrid: 'Blame Spurs for Bale delay'

Real Madrid's vice-president accuses Tottenham Hotspur of "dragging their feet" over the sale of Gareth Bale - but still expects the Welshman to seal his move to the Spanish capital.

Real Madrid vice-president Fernando Fernandez Tapias has said that the blame lies with Tottenham Hotspur over the protracted deal for Gareth Bale.

The Wales international, who is yet to finalise his world-record £86m move to the Spanish capital, is said to be "furious" with Spurs over their handling of the deal.

"I think it will happen but I cannot make any firm promises," Tapias told Marca

"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."

The La Liga giants are reportedly on the verge of dismantling the stage at the Santiago Bernabeu, which had been intended to be the platform for which Bale would be presented to supporters.
