Long time Spurs target Leandro Damiao has reportedly hinted that he feels he is ready to test himself outside of Brazil after the 22 year old has continued to impress at Internacional.
His employers however don’t seem to feel the same way and are claiming that any offers will be refused until the end of the domestic season in December.
“For Damiao we never received official offers from Italy, only informal contacts, no proposals on paper,” said the club’s president Giovanni Luigi.
“The only bids were received from Tottenham and PSG, but we rejected them because our intention and hope is to keep the player at least until December 2012.
Damiao has been going about his business becoming one of the hottest properties in world football but can how much longer can his current club hang on to him?
