Tottenham push Atletico Madrid to release Forlan

Atletico Madrid striker Diego Forlan continues to be linked with Tottenham.

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.
