The agent of Real Madrid fullback Fabio Coentrao is in London.

The Daily Star says Coentrao's agent was in London last night discussing a possible £20m transfer.

Coentrao was initially offered to Spurs by Real in part-exchange for Gareth Bale, but the north Londoners insisted any deal be done separately.
