Spurs boss Juande Ramos uses his knowledge of La Liga football to plan a raid for a former Manchester United failure!
Tottenham have made an £18million bid for former Manchester United striker Diego Forlan.
The initial offer was rejected by Forlan’s club Atletico Madrid on Thursday but Spurs boss Juande Ramos remains determined to sign the Uruguayan.
Forlan is keen for a move back to the Premier League but is unlikely to sacrifice the chance of Champions League football if Atletico progress. But if they fail to make the group stage, Spurs are confident of nailing down a deal before the transfer window closes.

Forlan hasn’t looked back since fleeing Old Trafford and has managed an incredible 82 goals in the four seasons since he left the Premier League. At 29 the price tag may be a bit on the high side but clearly Ramos has seen enough of the Uruguayan to rate him to highly. Clearly a bid may be more effective should the Spanish side fail to get past tricky opponents Schalke in the final qualifying round of the Champions League. Do Tottenham fans think that a move for the former United flop would be a wise one?
