It seems that transfer rumour is starting to veer slightly towards actual news as reports are coming out that Spurs have had a £10.5m bid for the Brazilian Leandro Damiao turned down. However, the suggestion is that his club are prepared to sell, so a little more cash could yet see Leandro reporting for duty as a Tottenham player next season.
Last week we looked at Leandro and he certainly seems an exciting prospect. His compatriot Sandro spoke of him in glowing terms to Spurs’ officials and that may have persuaded them to make a move.
This is what Internacional’s President, Giovanni Luigi said to the media: “It’s the first offer that we have received and we have refused it.
“I said I didn’t want to sell now. I warned that he’ll only leave at the end of the year and for more money.
“Tottenham has offered €12million for Damiao, but we think that it’s not enough for a player that is 21 years old and that has an excellent future.”
His club are reported to want £17m and while he does look a great player for the future, could that be just a little too much for a 21 year old with one full season and one international cap behind him?
