Tottenham stalling over Soldado loan offer

Spanish champions Atletico Madrid retain an interest in signing Tottenham striker Roberto Soldado on loan, but are struggling to convince the North London club to allow him to leave, reports the Daily Telegraph.

Roberto Soldado

Diego Simeone’s side are keen to bring Soldado back Spain on loan for the season with a view to a permanent deal, but Tottenham are unwilling to sanction the move at present, as they would need to sign a replacement ahead of the new Premier League season, which begins on August 16.

As things stand, Soldado is one of only three strikers in the first team at Tottenham, along with Emmanuel Adebayor and Harry Kane, meaning they cannot afford to lose one without bringing in a replacement.

New Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is hoping to keep Soldado this season in an attempt to get the best out of him, but the club are reportedly prepared to listen to any attractive offers they receive for the 29-year-old, who they signed from Valencia for £26m last summer.

Despite a prolific scoring record in La Liga, Soldado struggled to make an impression in his first season in England, netting just six times in the Premier League, with most of those coming from the penalty spot.

As if Tottenham will allow a 26m player who's just got through his first season in a new league to go out on loan to just cover his wages. This is a club who just spent25m on 1 player. They got 50m + in from romey alone, that's without winning the Spanish league and reaching the ECPL Final. Yea they got NO CHANCE!!
