Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has admitted his interest in Uruguay and Atletico Madrid striker Diego Forlan.

But Spurs boss is put off by Uruguayan's salary

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has admitted his interest in Uruguay and Atletico Madrid striker Diego Forlan. The former Manchester United forward has enjoyed an excellent World Cup and is a key reason why the South Americans have reached the semi-finals in South Africa. Forlan and strike partner Luis Suarez have both been linked with Premier League moves following their performances this summer. And Redknapp is among those following Uruguay's progress with interest, but he fears that Forlan's salary would be a stumbling block for any move. "I like the look of the Uruguayans," Redknapp is quoted as saying in the Sunday Express. "I think Forlan would have another two or three good years in the Premier League, but his wages could be a problem."
