Tottenham turned down in move for Madrid's Forlan
Tottenham's reported £13m bid for Diego Forlan of Atletico Madrid has been rejected by the Spanish outfit. Spurs made a late deadline-day bid for the Uruguay ace on Monday, however, after a meeting of the Primera Liga club's directors, Atletico have spurned the offer.
A source at the Spanish club said: "The offer is insufficient for the quality of our player."
Uruguay international Forlan has been with Atletico since arriving at Vicente Calderon from Villarreal in 2007.
