Real Madrid are ready to step up talks with Tottenham about moving their fringe players to the London club.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp wants Real trio Arjen Robben, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and Gabriel Heinze and talks have been ongoing since last week.

Last night, Valdano revealed: "We now need to find buyers for those players no longer required. The problem is convincing them to move on."
