Although Spurs chairman Daniel Levy revealed that his number one goalkeeper was not for sale, it is believed that the club may find an offer around the £35million region hard to turn down.

Madrid are said to be plotting an initial offer of around £20million to begin negotiations, but the price is expected to rise into the £30million region.

As well as the Red Devils, Ligue 1 giants, Paris Saint-Germain, are also linked with a move for the Tottenham star.
