Marca says Spurs have shown an interest in re-signing the Welshman, who left White Hart Lane to move to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu in 2013.

The Champions League runners-up have informed Real Madrid that they would be prepared to pay a fee between 50-60m.

However, they also made clear to his representatives that the 17m net that he earns each season would not be realistic for the club, who could only afford around half of that.

Now it is Real Madrid who must decide what to do and whether they rescind his contract for the next three seasons to liquidate half of that amount, about 25m.

Marca says Cristo has decided to leave Real Madrid and join Serie A club Udinese in a 1.5m.

The fee seems low, but it allows the Spanish club to include a buy-back clause and a sell-on fee.

Cristo stood out for Castilla last season as he scored 22 goals, 21 with the B team and then one for the Real Madrid first team on his debut against UD Melilla in the Copa del Rey.

He will fly to Italy on Tuesday for a medical and to sign his contract ahead of his presentation to the fans, as well as to meet his new coach, ex-Juventus player Igor Tudor.

Kubo, 18, has already displayed his quality in front of his new teammates.

Although he will play for Real Madrid Castilla next season, under the guidance of Raul Gonzalez, the Japanese playmaker is making the most of being amongst some of the world's best players.

"I'm learning a great deal as a player and person, both on and off the pitch," Kubo told Real Madrid TV.

"I'm having a great time.

"What really strikes me is the quality of all of the players. My teammates and the coaches are very pleasant and I've been able to adapt really well.

"I've got to make the most of this opportunity, but you've also got to enjoy it because it's not everyone that gets such a chance.

"In Japan there's a great passion for Real Madrid and I'm really proud to be at the best club in the world."

Marca says coach Zinedine Zidane is ready to keep Arsenal and Tottenham target Ceballos at Real Madrid after growing frustrated in his pursuit of Paul Pogba.

Zidane has made no secret of his interest in countryman Pogba, who is eager to leave Manchester United this summer.

But United are digging their heels in and will not settle for anything less than 180m.

Tottenham have been tipped to make a loan move for 22-year-old Ceballos, with Arsenal also believed to be monitoring the situation.

But Real have come to the conclusion they can't find anyone better than Ceballos at a reasonable price.

Kubo had been with Barca since a junior before being forced to return to Japan as part of FIFA sanctions over their youth recruitment policy.

Barca staff had expected Kubo to eventually return, however Real Madrid swooped to land the FC Tokyo whiz last month.

Kubo is already impressing Castilla coaches, convinced they've pulled off a transfer coup.

And a La Masia source told AS: "Kubo? This is the worst mistake of Bara for several years."

The wantaway Real Madrid midfielder is in talks with Napoli, though has seen negotiations stall - so opening the door to Atletico as an alternative.

Indeed, a James confidant told AS: "Every day that (Napoli president Aurelio) De Laurentiis passes without tying James is a step closer that the player goes to Atletico."

Indeed, James was Atletico's first choice to replace Antoine Griezmann once his departure for Barcelona was confirmed. However, Atletico need to sell before making their move.

Vitolo and Nikola Kalinic are the two players primed to be sold to make room.

And strengthening the chances of James staying in Madrid has been the positive messages being relayed from Simeone.

While understanding Thibaut Courtois will be the club's outright No1, Keylor wants to stay, says Marca.

As such, Real face having to send fellow goalkeeper Andriy Lunin away on-loan again. He spent last season with Leganes.

And a return to Leganes is likely, with both the club and Lunin keen to renew the loan. Real Betis are also interested.

Diego Altube, 18, is expected to be named third choice once Lunin departs.
