Spurs turn their attentions to Jese, after Real rule out Morata departure.
Spanish daily AS ran a credible-sounding update on Gareth Bale’s possible transfer to Real Madrid on Friday, claiming Tottenham want €120m (£104m) plus either Jese Rodriguez or Alvaro Morata for the Welshman.
But Real are unwilling to budge on their initial offer of €100m (£86m) and still want to include left-back Fabio Coentrao or winger Angel Di Maria in the deal to reduce the amount paid in cash.
Di Maria has already rejected a move to Spurs, but Coentrao is open to the idea of working under his compatriot Andre Villas-Boas.
The newspaper claims Spurs have turned their attentions to Jese, 20, after Real flatly refused to include striker Morata.
Villas-Boas was reportedly keen on Jese earlier this summer and Spurs sporting director Franco Baldini is understood to have to sounded out the youngster about a move to White Hart Lane when the Italian visited Spain in an attempt to sign Barcelona’s David Villa.
Jese has since signed a new contract until 2017 with the La Liga giants.
The article concludes by stressing that Levy is avoiding talks with Real Madrid president Florentino Perez until Real agree to up their offer but claims the Tottenham chairman is ‘doomed’ to eventually agree a deal because Bale is desperate to move to the Spanish capital.
