Real Madrid are rumored to be preparing a summer bid for Tottenham winger Gareth Bale. Some reports are saying Spurs need to finish at least in the top 4 and secure a place in the Champions League in order to keep hold of their talented Welshman.
Bale has been on Madrid's radar for quite some time now. He has been in fine form this season by scoring 13 goals for Tottenham in the league and four more for his country. He is determined to play regularly in Europe's leading club competition.
"Players who are performing at this level always get the attention," Villas-Boas said. "It doesn't mean that the club doesn't foresee a future with Gareth. It's intimately related to the objectives that we achieve for the season. Hopefully, we can do just that with the Champions League and continue to progress on what we are doing.
"It's difficult for us to have a player of this dimension playing so well, calling the attention of other teams but it's also difficult for other teams, with the economic situation as it is, to buy a player of this dimension. At the moment, we are very, very fortunate to have him.
"I think we can reach our objectives with him at this level and if we reach our objectives, we can hopefully continue to have Gareth in our club. He's a player we rate very, very highly and aren't willing to let go.
"The Champions League is where most of the clubs want to be, and where most of the players want to play. It's part of our objectives so hopefully achieving it means we can attract better players and continue to hold on to our best players."
Villas-Boas has drawn comparison between his player and Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo but he is hoping Bale does not follow his fellow Portuguese to the Bernabéu.
