Jose Mourinho has refused to comment on Tottenham's bid to re-sign Gareth Bale from Real Madrid.

Speaking ahead of his side's Europa League second-round qualifying clash with Lokomotiv Plovdiv, Mourinho told reporters: "Gareth Bale is a Real Madrid player and I don't comment on players from other clubs.



Standard Sport understands that Tottenham remained locked in talks with Real Madrid regarding a deal for Bale on Wednesday morning.



"Even [Gareth] knows that but I'm not going to speak to him any more because he's a Real Madrid player."

Asked about whether he tried to sign Bale while managing Manchester United, Mourinho responded: "Even before that, I tried to sign him for Real Madrid, which was not possibly to do during my time there but the president followed my instinct and my knowledge and the season I left he brought Gareth to the club.

Daniel Levy, the Spurs chairman, is leading negotiations with Real and Bale’s agent Jonathan Barnett, with optimism on all sides of completing the biggest transfer of the summer.

A loan deal is looking most likely, although Real have pushed for a permanent transfer as they look to offload their highest earner, who has two years remaining on his contract.
