Gareth Bale has been ordered back into training on Tuesday morning after the world’s most expensive transfer descended into chaos. Furious Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy stepped in and stalled the £86million deal in protest at what he believes to be the “arrogance” of buying club Real Madrid. Levy is also embroiled in a bitter row with Chelsea after the Blues responded to interest in unsettled Juan Mata by maintaining they would not be selling to their London rivals at White Hart Lane. Bale was expecting to seal his dream move to the Bernabeu on Tuesday. But instead of being presented to the world’s media in Madrid he is now being made to sweat. Tottenham also claim to have received a counter-bid from a mystery rival but Bale who scored 26 goals for Spurs last season still expects to sign for Real. Later Manchester United manager David Moyes denied the champions had made the late offer. "No" said the Scot when asked if United had joined the race for Bale before adding: "I have just said Manchester United are always interested in the best players. "The board and myself would always be looking to sign who we think are the best players whoever they are." The latest twist comes after the north Londoners reacted angrily to the Spaniards briefing the media on a timetable for presenting the star and the construction of a stage at the Bernabeu to parade him on.
