Sevilla’s Brazilian goal machine Luis Fabiano has issued an apparent come and get me plea to White Hart Lane chief Harry Redknapp.
The 29-year old former Sao Paulo and Porto striker, who found the back of the net three times at this summers World Cup in South Africa, has been made available by his Spanish employers and was offered to the North London club earlier this week.
At £150,000 a week, Spurs chief Redknapp was initially wary of doing a deal, fully aware of the stringent White Hart Lane wage structure.
However, Fabiano’s comments suggest that he is interested in a move to move to White Hart Lane, leaving us with the exciting prospect that a compromise could yet be found!
Speaking to reporters, Fabiano said :
“I must admit it’s only in the last few weeks I have understood just how big Spurs’ ambition is,” said the forward, who previously attracted interest from AC Milan and Manchester United.
Fabiano would certainly fit into the ‘marquee’ category that Harry Redknapp has so often spoken about this summer and I would imagine that every Spurs fan would be delighted to welcome the Samba star to the Lane. Whether or not the players comments are only offering us false hope remains to be seen but this is certainly one deal that is worth keeping your fingers crossed for!
