Gio on his way after all?

by Matthew Harris on August 16, 2012

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.

Gio was never given the chance to try to make it in Spurs. In my opinion I’m not exactly sure if we should let him go because we do not have adequate cover on the wings

I could say the same about Taarabt. We sold him and he did virtually nothing in the Premiership. Totally justified that we could not waste an entire season working him in. Gio is the same. After a season he may work himself in…. but we have always had better players in his position, and working him in would reduce our performance without any guarantees that he would actually come good. Gio has had 14 or so starts. That is enough for me to be able to make some sort of impact.

The question is why not to keep him on as a substitute. Who is the cover for Bale? Who is the cover for Lennon? I know we have Townsend But the other substitute is David Bentley!
