Tottenham demands scuppering Capoue move to Napoli

The agent of Etienne Capoue has criticised the player’s current club, Tottenham Hotspur, for making demands that are threatening to derail his move to Napoli, ESPN has reported.

Etienne Capoue

Capoue only moved to White Hart Lane in the summer, leaving Toulouse for a fee said to be around £9m, but has struggled to win a regular place in the side.

The Coach who signed the France international, Andre Villas-Boas, was replaced by Tim Sherwood last month and the injury-hit Capoue has made only eight appearances since August.

Napoli have been active already in the transfer market and were keen to sign Capoue but Spurs’ reported fee, £12m, has ended the Italians’ interest.

Marta Fischer, Capoue’s agent, told Italian radio: “The problem's not the player, nor Napoli. Tottenham want a lot of money and what they are asking for is crazy.

“It’s still only [mid-January] so Forza Napoli…but I can’t say too much.”

Capoue was part of a busy summer at the Lane, when the likes of Roberto Soldado, Vlad Chiriches, Paulinho and Erik Lamela also moved to the club.

I guess that if this report and all the other various reports on Capoue wanting to leave Spurs materialises into a load of old bollocks you'll just slink quietly away under the rock from which you emerged from. Nah, you'll just plagiarise someone else's story to get your ass out of as sling. You clowns are so anti Spurs it's so transparent and laughable. Instead of writing this article on the side of a greedy agent, perhaps you should remember first and foremost that Capoue is a SPURS player and they are therefore entitled to set a price for THEIR players and not the other way round. If Spurs decide that Capoue is surplus to requirements, in my view it would be a mistake but he is registered to them and no one else and as such, can set what asking price they want.
