Carlo Ancelotti admits he does not expect Gareth Bale join Real Madrid this summer.

The La Liga giants have been relentlessly linked with the 24-year-old Wales international, who is thought to be keen on moving to Spain.

Madrid are thought to have tabled a world-record £100m bid for the PFA player of the year but Spurs have made clear their desire to keep hold of their talisman.

And Real Madrid boss Ancelotti admits that there is nothing new to report regarding his club’s pursuit of Bale.

“At the moment I don’t think he will be coming to Madrid,” said Ancelotti.

“There is nothing new to report at the moment. Bale is a very touchy subject with Spurs.”

The former Chelsea boss added: “I’m very happy with the squad I have, but the best players will always make a team better.

“I’m very happy with the team, there is a good balance because there is a lot of experience and other young players.

“We have a good atmosphere and when the team is united, there are no problems. The team is united and I hope it will stay that way for the whole season.”
