Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas says Gareth Bale's move to Real Madrid could happen "very, very soon."

Bale is being pursued by Madrid for a reported world record transfer fee of about $134 million.

Villas-Boas, however, criticized the forward for failing to turn up for training while the transfer is being negotiated.

Villas-Boas says if the transfer happens "we wish him all the best, but the fact that he hasn't turned up is not the correct behavior."
