Internacional have said no to Spurs after the offer from the North London club failed to meet the Brazilian’s valuation of the player. On Tuesday, Inter vice president of football, Luciano Davi, said “Tottenham came after us. The offer did not reach the number that Inter think [he] is worth. Damião is a Brazil [national team] centreforward and we need to take this into account”.
Even though the European transfer window is open until Friday, Davi was adamant that the striker would be staying at least for now. “Our intention is not to sell Damião this year. He is an Inter athlete until December [at least]. The bid that was made wasn’t relevant and we are not interested in selling him”, Davi added.
The exact figure of the bid was not revealed but it is believed to be around the £20 million mark.
Leandro Damião has a contract with Internacional until June 2016 with a buyout clause of around £39.5 million (€50 million).
