Tottenham boss Pochettino set to sell Soldado to Atletico to fund moves for Remy and Rodriguez

Tottenham look set to offload striker Roberto Soldado in order to fund moves for Loic Remy and Jay Rodriguez, according to The Independent.

Roberto Soldado

Atletico Madrid are thought to be interested in taking the 29-year-old back to Spain, where he spent 11 years including stints with Getafe, Valencia and Atletico’s conquerors in the Champions League final, Real Madrid.

Spurs paid a then-record £26m for the Spanish international, but he has failed to make the impact expected during his stay at White Hart Lane, netting just six goals in 28 appearances for the club. The Independent also indicates that sources close to the player have said he would consider taking a pay-cut to bring an end to his tenure in north London, and a move back to his homeland is thought to be one that appeals, and Atletico are keen to get some new attacking options with striker Diego Costa looking set to move to Chelsea this summer.

New Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino will be handed around £50m to strengthen the squad this summer, and the Argentinian hopes to add more to that amount by selling off players he has no plans for – and Soldado could fetch around £13m to help fund moves for QPR striker Loic Remy, who spent this season impressing on loan at Newcastle. Remy would be available for a move should Spurs meet QPR's £8m valuation.

He will also look to raid his former club Southampton for England striker Jay Rodriguez, and while fellow Saint Adam Lallana is also of interest a move for Rodriguez appears the more likely of the two at this stage.
