Giovani Dos Santos may have turned in some impressive displays at London 2012 but Spurs fans had seen it all before. The midfielder had consistently produced goals and match winning performances at international level before returning to Spurs and continuing to disappoint.
A new manager may have watched Gio at the Olympics and decided to give him a run in the team but stories over the last 48 hours insist that the Mexican is finally on his way – possibly as part of a deal involving Brazilian international goalkeeper Julio Cesar.
The stories seem to have been ‘confirmed’ by the player’s agent, Vicente Montes,
The truth is that Gio has always wanted to play in La Liga or Serie A so that’s what we’re aiming for,” Montes said.
“A swap deal with Julio Cesar? Often journalists talk without knowing the truth, but that is not the case here.
“Inter is one of the possibilities, I can’t deny that.”
The Inter move would still have a long way to go, even if it does have substance but this may be a clear indication that Dos Santos is finally set to leave White Hart Lane.
