Tottenham to take £15m loss on Spurs ace this January?

Soldado.jpgTottenham fans are a mix of relief and frustration in the Football Transfer Tavern as they are set to receive a bid for their misfiring forward.

According to The Express, Inter Milan are ready to make a £11 million bid for Roberto Soldado who has struggled since arriving at White Hart Lane at the start of last season.

The reason why neutrals believe Spurs fans have mixed feelings on the matter is because although they are pleased a club is finally willing to take him off their hands, they are not going to receive half of the £26 million fee they paid for him.

Although this is no surprise as he has had a miserable time in North London since signing from Valencia but the Italian giants will not be able to compete with his current £60,000-a-week contract even if a fee was a agreed.

Their highest earner is on a reported £40,000-a-week, meaning the 29-year-old must be willing to take a cut of around a third in wages to have a fresh start abroad.

The appointment of Mauricio Pochettino was thought to be a fresh start for the Spaniard but the new Lilywhites boss has consistently chosen to play Harry Kane or Emanuel Adebayor ahead of him.

Punters in the tavern see it as no surprise that the new manager wants to offload him as he has only managed to score six Premier League goals in 38 appearances, with four of them coming from the penalty spot. A shocking record by all accounts.
