Spurs face a fight with Real for £24 million Spanish striker

Tottenham are to be engaged in a massive bidding war this summer for the signature of Valencia striker David Villa, who is now wanted by Real Madrid. (Various)

The Spanish international is said to be interested in leaving Valencia at the end of the season after a poor campaign for the La Liga outfit. Villa has been linked with several clubs in recent weeks including Spurs and Real.

Spurs boss Juande Ramos is said to be very keen on bringing the 26-year old to White Hart Lane and he is willing to bid as much as £24 million for the player.

In my book, Villa is an outstanding player. He has a record of a goal every other game wherever he has been in his career including his international team Spain. I feel he is as good as, if not better, than Liverpool striker Fernando Torres (and that's pretty good).
