Tottenham Hotspur’s Brazilian warrior Sandro could leave London for Italy when the transfer window opens in January, according to his agent.
The 22-year-old defensive midfielder is an emerging talent and if it wasn’t for the outstanding Scott Parker, he would be a guarantee starter in the Spurs team.
Sandro is a huge fan favourite at the Lane and it would be very upsetting to see the Brazilian leave. The promising midfielder has a lot to offer and has left Harry in a huge predicament. As much as Sandro is a terrific player and holds many attributes, it is a real dilemma to fit him into the team. In all honesty it is highly doubtful that Sandro would feature in Spurs’ first team unless an injury to Modric or Parker occurs.
Sandro did sign a five-year extension to his contract back in September, but may now be re-thinking his options. The Brazilian has had a torrid start to the season and has mainly had to adjust to life on the bench. It has been reported that the 22-year-old is growing increasingly frustrated with his lack of first team action.
Sandro attracted a lot of attention from Italy after his display at the San Siro in last season’s Champions League encounter. Sandro was instrumental in Tottenham’s 1-0 victory over Milan and has since been linked with a move to the Rossoneri on a number of occasions.
It is believed that several other Italian clubs are also monitoring Sandro’s situation and could make an attempt to sign him this January. Sandro’s agent Luiz Paulo Chignall admits that while no official bid has yet been proposed, the dynamic midfielder would keep his options open if a potential move to Italy did arise.
Chignall told Italian website Notiziario Sportivo: “A move to Italy? Sandro is interested in playing in the major leagues, and Serie A is one of them.
“In football you can never rule anything out, though, with it possible that negotiations will see all parties reach an agreement.
“Many clubs have contacted me for information on his situation, but there has been no official proposal. He’s a Tottenham player and any possible negotiations must pass through the club.”
