Bale completes Madrid switch
Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas has confirmed that Gareth Bale has agreed to join Real Madrid, bringing an end to the long-running saga.
Spurs have been in talks with Real for much of the summer and the speculation now appears to be coming to a close.
Speaking after his side lost 1-0 to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium, Villas-Boas said of Bale: "He is going to join Real Madrid so we wish him all the best.
"He is an absolutely wonderful player.
"He has left us with some great memories from last season which every Tottenham fan cherishes, but he has moved on and we will move on as well."
