Andre Villas-Boas has told Luka Modric to keep his nose out of Tottenham's business before insisting it would be "completely impossible" for the club to sell Gareth Bale.
Modric, who left Spurs this summer, urged Bale to come and join him at Real Madrid on Friday, telling The Sun: "I know Gareth has a big dream of winning the Champions League and Madrid would be a great club for him to achieve it."
But Villas-Boas responded: "I think he should focus more on his club than ours. He has to worry about (Real's) game against Atletico Madrid and about getting in to the quarter-finals of the Champions League."
He addded: "Obviously Modric is aware of Gareth's performances because of his love for Tottenham and the fact that he is very connected with him and this football club, but it's completely impossible (for Bale to leave)."
