Rumours persist over Malaga target

There were some brief rumours linking Malaga playmaker Isco with a move to Spurs in the summer but the stories attracted little publicity at the time. However, if new reports are to be believed, the Spanish under 23 international attracted a firm bid from White Hart Lane before the transfer window closed.

“There have been no calls from Russia for him. Tottenham tried to sign him before the market closed. He remains ours and with his clause, no-one has activated that,” said the Malaga Sporting Director Mario Husillos.

The release clause in question is reported to be 21 million euros for a man who cost Malaga just four million when he joined from Valencia in 2011.

These reports are also suggesting that Malaga are looking to increase the level of that clause but no matter how many times they call him the new Xavi, it seems as if the figures involved will be beyond the acceptable limits for Tottenham.

      Our main scout Ian Broomfield is now sacked. He was shit anyway. I agree that he should be in a spurs shirt by now if we really wanted him, Malaga needed the money and now we will be priced out.
