In recent years Spurs have become familiar with attempting to fight off Real Madrid in order to keep hold of their star players.
In the past 18 months Tottenham have received around £115m from Real Madrid for star players Gareth Bale and Luka Modric.
According to The Telegraph summer signing Paulinho is on Carlo Ancelotti’s wishlist.
Signed for £17m by Andre Villas-Boas, Daniely Levy will be unlikely to want to sell the talented Brazilian at any price.
Despite Tottenham’s poor season thus far, Paulinho is reportedly settled in London, but a move to Real Madrid may be too good to turn down.
