It’s the time of the year when football agents start to speak carelessly about their clients in the hope of talking up a move. As far as Tottenham are concerned, their recent run of form and the threat of missing out on Champions League qualification means that we can expect more comments like the ones from Gareth Bale’s representative yesterday.
For the time being though, it’s the turn of Sandro’s man, Muhamed Sakic who says that the player is happy where he is while at the same time suggesting that the Brazilian could end up in Italy.
“Sandro is happy play at Tottenham and very happy to be in London,” Sakic said.
“From what we read in the tabloids, Sandro has already joined Zenit and Anzhi. But it’s true that we have had interest in him from many European clubs.
“Sandro could go to Italy next season.”
Harry Redknapp has been very disparaging of agents’ comments and maybe this is just another case of trying to negotiate a better deal for Sandro at Spurs. It is likely however that we shall be seeing more of this sort of thing in the coming weeks.
