Atletico Madrid are keen to sign Spurs forward Roberto Soldado on loan but Tottenham would prefer to sell the Spaniard, according to the Daily Telegraph.

The former Valencia forward became the club’s record signing when he joined in a £26m deal last summer but after a good start, the Spanish international tumbled down the pecking order.

Soldado scored four times in his first three appearances for Spurs but ended the season with just 11 goals as Emmanuel Adebayor and Harry Kane were picked ahead of him.

Atleti, who have lost Diego Costa to Chelsea this summer, are understood to be keen to sign Soldado on loan for the season, whereas Spurs would prefer to sell.

The 29-year-old has a good record in La Liga, having scored 101 league goals in 248 starts for Valencia, Getafe, Osasuna and Real Madrid.

Loan Soldado! What a great idea.... If you're a complete moron. He starts to play well and then we think oh lets loan him out? These stories are pointless as even Levy isn't that stupid. Atletico and Tottenham have 0 relationship and aren't going to give us one of their stars so there is no point. Soldado played but no one played to his strengths, this season Poch will get out of him what AVB and Sherwood failed to
