Gareth Bale is with the Real Madrid squad on a pre-season tour of Canada

Gareth Bale's agent, Jonathan Barnett, has rubbished reports from Spain that Tottenham are in talks to sign the Real Madrid forward for £50m.

Barnett, responding to a story in Spanish newspaper Marca, told Sky Sports News: "I never comment on rubbish."

Bale, just turned 30, is currently with the Real Madrid squad in Montreal, Canada for their pre-season tour.

Real head coach Zinedine Zidane has "decided he can do without Bale", Barnett told Sky Sports News last month.

The former Spurs man is said to be one of a number of players Real are trying to offload this summer as they look to raise funds for Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.

However, Real's high-valuation of the Wales international, Bale's reported £600,000-a-week wages and the fact the winger is settled in Madrid make a departure difficult.

Bale going out on loan was reportedly an option, however, Barnett told Sky Sports News in June that "there's more chance of me winning at Ascot", ruling out the possibility.

Manchester United are one of the only teams in world football who could afford Bale's wages, but it is understood they have dropped their long-standing interest in the Wales international.

Also speaking to Sky Sports News in June, Barnett said: " He could fit in at United. I think he could do very well - he is still one of the best players in the world. But it is very unlikely."
