If Tottenham were to beat Young Boys next week to qualify for the Champions League, Fabiano would be cup-tied, somewhat decreasing his value to Harry Redknapp. The Brazilian striker started in Sevilla’s 1-0 defeat away to Braga in the first leg of their qualifier for Europe’s most prestigious football competition .
With only a year left on his current contract, Sevilla will hope to cash in on Fabiano who in turn also hopes to make some big money. The forward told the Express that his goalscoring record in La Liga (62 in 127) is testament to his abilities and that he is deserved of one last big contract:
“Tottenham are the sort of club I want to be at. I feel that I could fire them to the finish above Arsenal I know the club and fans so desperately want. My next contract will be my last one, or at least my last big one, and I have to take that into account. My goal record in La Liga speaks for itself. I believe myself to be one of the top strikers in the world and you just need to look at the deals players like David Villa, Samuel Eto’o and Didier Drogba are on”.
Tottenham would surely be the perfect home for the Brazilian international where the player would be appreciated for the World class striker that he claims to be. His expectations for silverware match those of Sir Optimistic Ferguson:
“I truly believe in the next two seasons Spurs can win the Premier League or European Cup. I’d love to be a part of it – I just need to know that they value me as one of the world’s top strikers.”
Jermaine Jenas and Robbie Keane are likely candidates to leave Tottenham with money from the sales contributing to the Fabiano transfer kitty. Their combined value these days is less than Levy might wish, but to take the club forward tough decisions have to be made.
