The People says Forlan's future is up in the air after his two-goal heroics helped Uruguay win the Copa America.
Tottenham are keen but Atletico are now demanding a fee for him, having hinted at a free transfer.
Along with his personal demands, that could be enough to scare off Spurs. Forlan's agent flies to Spain tomorrow to thrash out his future. The striker earns £8m a year and would want a pay-off if he is going to take a wage cut in England.
