Tottenham supporters in the Football Transfer Tavern have been left slightly surprised with the latest speculation from Metro making its way into the bar this afternoon.
The paper suggests that Spurs could give up the ghost with misfiring summer signing Roberto Soldado and sell him back to Spain after less than 12 months.
It’s fair to say that the Spanish international has suffered a disappointing first season at White Hart Lane following his £26 million transfer in August.
With five goals in his 21 outings for Tottenham, we’re not quite sure how he was averaging a goal in every two games for Valencia but we certainly haven’t seen anything to suggest that he is worth his massive price tag.
He was supposed to be the answer to the club’s striking concerns but the failure to launch his Premier League career ultimately cost Andre Villas-Boas his job.
Lately the striker has been replaced in the Lilywhites’ starting line up by Emmanuel Adebayor as his poor form in front of goal continues.
His sitter away at Dnipro pretty much summed up his entire campaign at White Hart Lane as he blazed over from three yards when it was simpler to score. As ‘Arry once famously said ‘my misuses would have scored that’. We can’t help but agree.
Atletico Madrid are today being linked with Soldado as a replacement for Diego Costa but despite our criticism we’d be disappointed to see him leave after only one campaign.
However perhaps he’ll be an improvement next term and we reckon that at least one more season should be given to the Spain international.
Should Spurs give Soldado another season or would they be better giving up with their utterly disappointing summer signing? Let us know your thoughts below.
