Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp admits they cannot afford to sign Atletico Madrid star Diego Forlan.

Forlan recently suggested he would be ready to quit Atletico Madrid but Redknapp said there is little chance of the club going back for the former Manchester United marksman.

"We can't afford him. He's on about £120k a week or something," Redknapp said.

"If you work it out on a two or three-year contract, you're talking about £28million and there's no return on your money."
