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.
