Porto are demanding Tottenham cough up big for midfielder Joao Moutinho. Porto boss Vitor Pereira today admitted Tottenham want Moutinho but insisted the White Hart Lane club will have to pay £31.5million to land the midfielder.

He said: "I have not spoken with Villas-Boas but it is natural that he likes Moutinho. I like him, too.

"Clubs cannot just not sell. We really want him to stay but this is football and there are release clauses.

"The only thing we can do is achieve results with what we have got."
