Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho remained tight-lipped on the club's attempts to re-sign Gareth Bale from Real Madrid but tellingly revealed he has tried to recruit the Wales international in two of his previous jobs.

Asked for the latest, Mourinho said: "Gareth Bale is a Real Madrid player.



Mourinho claimed he had not only tried to buy Bale during his time in charge of United but that he had wanted to sign the forward for Real Madrid in 2012 – a year before Los Blancos agreed a then world-record £85million deal with Tottenham.



I don't comment on players from other clubs.

Pushed on his attempts to sign Bale for United, however, Mourinho said: "Even before that, I tried to sign him for Real Madrid, which was not possible 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.

I already feel it's a very different dressing room to the one when I arrived.

The dressing room isn't in a bad place – we've had one game. "
