Jose Mourinho refused to discuss Tottenham’s proposed move for Gareth Bale.
Bale’s agent, Jonathan Barnett, has revealed that talks are ongoing between Spurs and Real Madrid over a return for the Welshman.
“Gareth Bale is a Real Madrid player and I don’t talk about players from other clubs,” Mourinho said in a press conference on Wednesday.
“It’s not my job to have contact with agents and I don’t want to comment.
“I tried to sign him during my time at Real Madrid and the president followed my instinct and knowledge and the season I left, he brought Gareth to the club.
“That’s no secret and Gareth knows that.”
