Gareth Bale is "furious" with Tottenham's handling of his proposed transfer, Soccer4life sources understand.
The Wales international was expected to meet up with his Spurs team-mates but he did not turn up and is increasingly frustrated with how the club are dealing with the situation.
Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas is however understood to have no issue with Bale over his absence from training on Tuesday and is in touch with the winger over the club's training schedule.
Reports emerged over the Bank Holiday weekend suggesting Real Madrid were not the only club to make an approach for him, with Manchester United also linked with the player.
Bale - who has spotted in central London ahead of a meeting with his representatives on Tuesday - now appears to be losing patience as the clock ticks down towards the close of the transfer window on 2 September, with his world record £86m move to Madrid in the balance.
The Bale transfer saga has continued to drag on all summer, every week we get the feeling the deal is about to be completed but once weekend arrives the headline turns to "Bale saga takes another twist".
We get report of countless meetings between Real Madrid representatives and Tottenham to finalise a deal but at the end all this comes to nothing.
At this point am also as frustrated as Bale himself, because the career of a football star is at stake. Bale has missed a couple of games for his team Tottenham due to the so culled injury usually sustained by players who are subject to transfer speculations. At this moment nobody is even sure if Bale can reproduce the brilliance he has shown for the last three seasons because he hasn't kicked a ball in any competitive game whether for club or country.
Complicating matters is the fact that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has grown increasingly irritated with the Spanish club’s conduct over the past few days, as they continue to behave as if the deal is already completed. A stage to unveil Bale was erected at the Bernabeu at the weekend, while there was also a technical error when Real jerseys with the player’s name and the number 11 were visible on the Madrid side’s website.
A question still remains to be unanswered, why would Real Madrid being making all this technical errors if a deal has not been agreed with them? or can it just be another strategy to get their man for less, better still maybe Spurs are playing the delay game just to bring in a replacement for the Welsh man.
With all this weekly twist and turns one cannot help but asked " Does Gareth Bale have any reason to be frustrated"?
