Is the Sandro Ranieri saga about to end?

According to Sandro Ranieri’s lawyer, Luíz Paulo Chignall, the player has agreed personal terms with Spurs.

However, the midfielder’s representative also made it clear that Internacional and Tottenham have yet to come to an agreement over the fee. “Talks have taken place and we have a verbal agreement over the salary and length of contract … Our part is ok, now we need a deal between the clubs but I can’t say exactly what the situation is [between them]”.

If the deal does go through, Tottenham are expected to shell out around £6.5 million for the 20-year-old. However, signing Ranieri could be complicated as currently the player is part owned by an investment group and this may up the fee Spurs have to pay.

Another possible problem is that Inter’s new coach, Jorge Fossati, has said that he wants the Brazil international for the Porto Alegre club’s campaign in the Libertadores. This could keep the player in Brazil until August 2010.

    I don’t think Sandro is that keen to move to Spurs. He’ll probably go but I bet he’ll use it as a stepping stone to another club.

    I’ve read that there are still work permit issues to be overcome so this move probably won’t happen until the end of the EPL season.

    As to him using Spurs as a stepping stone, if we get a CL place this year or at worst, the Europa League, he’ll have the ideal platform on which to shine. However, he needs to prove first that he has the ability (rather than just the potential) that will attract interest from other teams. If Barca, Real, ManU, Milan etc come sniffing then they’ll have to expect to pay top dollar.
