We’ve probably had about as much speculation as anyone can endure over the Roberto Soldado deal with most outlets starting to suggest that the player’s buy out clause has been met and that the striker is preparing to travel to London ahead of a White Hart Lane medical.
Not all areas of the media are in agreement with that suggestion however and some are claiming that the deal is far from done while others are even reporting on a proposed move from Liverpool to hijack the transfer.
However, it has almost got to the stage where some of us are checking the club’s official website for a confirmed update but as we wait for new arrivals, it seems as if the departure of Emmanuel Adebayor may also be imminent.
The deal seems to rest on whether Besiktas are cleared to play in the Europa League,
“We are interested in Adebayor, the transfer could still go ahead,” said club President Firket Orman. “The deal breaker for Adebayor was whether we would play in Europe this season, as soon as we are I will travel to London and complete the deal.”
However, reports suggest that a decision on that may not be made until the 30th of August leaving little time for anything to be formalised. So, in both cases, we wait on a decision but for the Soldado signing at least, the news may come sooner rather than later.
