Sandro is very ‘unlikely’ to leave Tottenham Hotspur
Tottenham Hotspur are unlikely to sell midfielder Sandro according to a source close to the player, despite reports Napoli are close to signing the Brazilian.
The former Internacional ace has fallen down the pecking order at White Hart Lane over the past eight months and had been predicted to exit the club this summer.
However, the unnamed source believes Spurs chairman Daniel Levy will ask for too much money from the Serie A club. Football Italia quoted the source, after he spoke to AreaNapoli.it.
On Sandro, the source said: “There are no positive developments. It’s very unlikely Spurs will sell Sandro at this moment, as time is running out and they give negotiators precious little room for manoeuvre.
“We can’t talk officially about figures, but Daniel Levy always asks for big money.
“If he doesn’t receive what he’s asking for, the player will remain in London.”
The source was asked why Sandro hasn’t featured in Tottenham games this season and it was revealed that it was a coaching decision by Mauricio Pochettino, not to do with transfer.
He said: “Evidently it was a coaching decision. We are almost at the end of the transfer market, so it’s unlikely anything will change very soon, unless a club accepts Tottenham’s terms.”
