Premier League Transfer News: Spurs Target RaulEnglish Premier League clubs are on full transfer alert after Spanish striker Raul hinted that he would be interested in a move to the Barclays Premier League. Raul had been expected to sign for Schalke today but his comments could see him for the first, time play in the English league.

It is believed that English clubs such as Manchester City, Chelsea, Newcastle and Tottenham are all interested in the veteran Spanish striker. Reports suggest though it could well be a straight fight between Newcastle & Tottenham to land the Spanish superstar.

Raúl González Blanco, known simply as Raul is now 32, and is Real Madrid’s all-time top goal scorer. He is a three-time winner of the UEFA Champions League, the competition’s all-time leading goal scorer plus he is also the all-time top goal scorer for the Spanish national side. Even though it is clear Raul is at the end of his career many feel he does have maybe two good seasons left in him.

Raul, though, admitted that the decision to leave Madrid was a tough one.

‘It’s a hard day for me,’ he said. ‘I feel like a footballer still and I will keep on playing, but I will always be loyal to Real Madrid. I have tried to give everything in my time here.’

“Being a Real Madrid player is the greatest dream you can imagine,’ he said.’Today more than ever I want everybody to know that in every move, dribble, turn or gesture on the field of play, I tried to give the best I could. In my head the word surrender has never existed, because that is what Real Madrid is about.”

We expect Raul to sign for an English club this week but which one?
