Brazilian international Sandro is back to his immense best at White Hart Lane after an unchallenged period on the right side of defensive midfield. In the absence of Scott Parker, who largely became first choice in that slot in 2011-12, Sandro has returned to his best form and he’s undoubtedly an important part of the side.
Over the last two days the newspapers have been reporting on what they call a ‘shock’ move from Manchester United for the player, once the January transfer window opens. Maybe there’s some truth in it or perhaps the reporters has just been scouring copies from 2011.
Almost a year ago – on 17th November 2011 – we reported the very same story. AC Milan had supposedly made a derisory offer of £15m but United had allegedly become involved with the hope that Fabio and Rafael could persuade their compatriot to travel to Old Trafford.
We’re not claiming that we ‘broke’ this story but the point is it came to nothing and hopefully this will too.
