Valencia have demanded that Tottenham Hotspur put up or shut up with regards their rumoured efforts to sign striker Roberto Soldado. The La Liga side’s president Amadeo Salvo has said that Soldado can leave, if Spurs meet the player’s £26m buy-out clause. Andre Villas-Boas had been hoping to negotiate a deal with the Spanish club, but it seems now that they are refusing to budge from their valuation.
White Hart Lane technical director Franco Baldini will travel to Spain this week in an attempt to iron out a deal with Valencia according to reports in the Daily
While Salvo has said that Spurs will have to meet their valuation of the striker, he has also maintained that the deal is not dead in the water. But that further talks with the Premier League outfit have been scheduled.
Spurs had been hoping to drive the price down having been previously unwilling to pay the fee needed to activate the 28-year-old’s release clause. It now looks though like negotiations are going to come to a head soon and that the North London club will have to break their transfer record to bring in the Spanish international.
