Jose Mourinho has rejected claims linking Real Madrid with a summer move for Tottenham star Gareth Bale.
The Portuguese coach Real are well covered at left hand side, with Cristiano Ronaldo and Marcelo capable of playing on left wing.
“I was one of the first to say he will be an amazing player. I was saying that when he was not known in European football, just in England, so I know the great player he is,” Mourinho was quoted as saying.
“He is still young and there is a big space for him to improve so he will be a really top, top, top player. I have no doubt about that.
“Tottenham is not a good club to sell though. It is a club that buys.
“I think for the amount of money involved, it is not easy to buy and we have players for that position.
“We have Cristiano who plays in the same position he plays, and Marcelo at left-back.
“When you want to spend big money you do it in areas where you have problems, but I have no doubt he is a very good boy.”
