Worst kept secret in the world? Ranieri to Spurs

Brazilian club, Internacional, have finally confirmed that midfielder Sandro Ranieri will join Spurs. Speculation about the transfer has been rife in the UK press but very little news had come out of the Beira-Rio. But on Monday 23rd, the Porto Alegre outfit announced on their site that Ranieri was on his way to London for a medical with Tottenham. If all goes to plan, the midfielder will return to Brazil and stay with Inter until their run in the Libertadores comes to an end, which could be as late as the middle of August if the Brazilians make it to the finals. Tottenham are expected to fork out around €10 million (£9.9 million) for the 21-year-old.  See our special video feature on Ranieri in Brazil: the talent factory 2009.

    Strong, solid player. IF he adapts and is given regular football this guy could really excell at Tottenham/ He can play at a higher level in my opinion. If Spurs make the Champions League for next year, he could really make a name for himself.

    On the flip side, any difficulties in adjusting to life away from home and a lack of consistent playing time could stunt Sandro’s progress and result in his decision to move to north London being a bad one.

    I’d love to see the guy succeed in the Premiership. He’s done a great job at Inter.

    I don’t like Tottenham, but I still hope Sandro excels in the Premiership.
