La Liga giants target White Hart Lane duo.
TOTTENHAM face a fight with Real Madrid and Barcelona to keep hold of two of their hottest prospects.
Teenage duo Alex Pritchard and Shaquille Coulthirst have caught the eye of the Spanish giants in this season’s NextGen Series – youth football’s equivalent of the Champions League.

Andre Villas-Boas may have ever reason to fear his top young talents could be lured away from White Hart Lane if indeed either of the Spanish giants decide to take an interest in their youth team contingent.
Alex Pritchard is in the final year of his current contract and has impressed many with his displays in the NextGen series, where is currently joint top scorer with team-mate Coulthirst and Ajax wonderkid Victor Fischer.
Shaquille Coulthirst’s hat-trick away at Barcelona will clearly have caught the eye and it appears that Europe’s ‘Elite’ have taken a concerted view that looking to nab talents from other club’s academy systems is a far most cost effective manner in which to plan for the future.
Tottenham clearly have a fair few top talents coming through the ranks with their young side coming top of their Under 21 Premier League group, ahead of Man United’s young crop.
