Spurs striker target speaks out over potential move

Published Add your comment

Tottenham target Diego Forlan has dismissed suggestions he will return to the Barclays Premier League this season.

The Atletico Madrid striker has been heavily linked with a summer move to north London as Spurs trawl the continent for a goalscorer of proven quality.

However, the 32-year-old has deflected speculation linking him with Tottenham - insisting he is happy in Madrid.

"Right now there is no offer. I have two years left on this contract, I'm fine here.

"I have been in my house for four years, in a great city and a good team. It would take a very good offer to make me consider changing."

Spurs had been monitoring the Uruguay international with genuine interest during the January transfer window, as Harry Redknapp made a trip to Spain to view Forlan at close-quarters.


The Spurs boss, however, admitted that he would struggle to bring the former Manchester United forward to White Hart Lane due to his significant wage demands.

“Diego Forlan has been mentioned but we are not going to get near their wages,” said Redknapp at the time.

“The chairman would not be paying £100,000 or more a week to players that is for sure. "

Spurs have also been linked with Espanyol's Pablo Osvaldo and Atheltic Bilbao hotshot Fernando Llorente in their pursuit of a marquee summer signing.
