After a newspaper reported that Mauricio Pochettino may want to move Roberto Soldado on this summer, the news feeds were full with the rumour that the striker was being lined up to replace Diego Costa at Atletico Madrid.
The deal taking Costa to Chelsea has been mooted for months now and it could be sealed before the World Cup in Brazil, leaving Atleti to replace a man who scored 36 goals in 51 appearances last season.
Soldado’s return wasn’t as impressive as we all know but does he deserve a second season at White Hart Lane or should Spurs cut their losses now and look to a forward such as Loic Remy who has adapted better to the Premier League?
A better option for Atletico could be Fernando Torres who keeps failing at Chelsea while Soldado has only been in the Premiership for a season. Torres was at Atleti before joining Liverpool and may welcome a return to his homeland more than the Spurs man.
This will be interesting to follow over the next few weeks but what should Spurs’ stance be on the issue?
