Sandro Ranieri doesn't want to get involved in his own transfer

Watch our FootBrazil special on Sandro Ranieri and other future stars in our: Brazil the talent factory 2009 video

Internacional midfielder, Sandro Ranieri, today denied he’d been in England for a medical at Tottenham.

The player, who is actually on holiday in the city of Riachinho in the state of Minas Gerias, and not in London as The News of the World reported, told the Brazilian press:

“I’m happy enjoying my time with my family and friends. I left the business [of the possible transfer] to Inter’s management and my agent, Luíz Paulo Chignall, to work out. Now I’m only thinking about taking a rest”.

The player’s rather blasé attitude to a possible move to Spurs will have not pleased the London club or their supporters. But Ranieri is taking some much-needed time out after a long season in Brazil, which began way back in January and only finished last weekend.

    Inter are in no rush to sell Sandro although it’s clear he will be joining Tottenham either in January of the summer.

    He’s a huge talent but I do wonder, is Tottenham really the best option for him at this stage of his career??

    Let’s hope he does not become another Fabio Rochemback!!

    It was reported by at least one Spurs ITK that Sandro was a VIP guest at WHL for the Wolves game. The assumption is that he also took time out to view the Club’s training facilities and future plans.

    As Matt said, it may not be in January but could be next Summer.

      if that’s true then Sandro certainly gets around haha – it seems he was interviewed and photographed here in Brazil last week but it’s not completely impossible for him to have made a lightening quick trip to the UK
