Gareth Bale is "furious and frustrated" with Tottenham and did not show up for training Tuesday morning while he waits to be transferred to Real Madrid, the Guardian reports. 

The two sides, however, haven't agreed to a deal yet, as Tottenham claims there's another bid in for Bale — which could just be a strategy for hiking up the price. Real Madrid is already prepared to pay in the area of $134 million for the transfer of the Welshman, breaking by about $10 million the transfer fee Real Madrid paid for Cristiano Ronaldo in 2009.

Real Madrid was hoping to unveil Bale, 24, on Tuesday and had already worked out a six-year package worth $15 million yearly with his camp.
