Internacional director says Ranieri will not join Tottenham Hotspur in January

January 13, 2010 at 21:21 5 comments

Sandro Ranieri’s move to Tottenham Hotspur now appears to be off until at least until August.  On Wednesday night, Inter’s vice president of football, Fernando Carvalho, told Rádio Gaúcho: “Sandro is not moving in this transfer window. The partnership with Tottenham was not finalized. There are lot of details that we did not sign up to … Sandro will only leave when this agreement is signed with Inter”.

This news is yet another twist and  in the player’s on-off move to Tottenham. Only on Wednesday morning, reports in the Daily Mirror and The Guardian were saying that the midfielder was on his way to the London club. Ranieri and his agent appeared to have agreed personal terms with Tottenham but the sticking point in the transfer is the lack of agreement between Inter and Spurs. However, this latest statement from the Brazilians may just be part of their strategy to push through a potentially lucrative partnership with Spurs that could see the exchange of playing personnel moving between the clubs.

    This is just one big saga. I hope it gets sorted out sooner rather than later.

    I think its clear that Sandro isn’t pushing for the move.

    Inter don’t need to sell him, he doesn’t need to leave Inter to win titles and I would also argue that joining Tottenham would be a move to a smaller club. It does appear that he is destined to move to Spurs but what’s the rush?

    What about stories in the London papers this week that the deal will go through in a few days?

      virtually nothing here about it – which is why i haven’t written on the subject . the only thing i’ve seen is that Ranieri says that negotiations with Tottenham are at an advanced stage but for now he’s focussing on the Libertadores
