Esteban Granero might not be a household name in Spain but he is certainly a player whom north London club Tottenham Hotpur fancy. Reports suggest that Spurs will launch an official bid for the 20-year old Spain Under-21 international midfielder in the summer.
Granero is a product of the Real Madrid youth set-up but couldn’t manage to break into the first team. He is loan at Spanish side Getafe from Real Madrid for until the end of the season and his agent Teo Lazaro hints that the player may not return to Real in the summer:
The kid is calm and is concentrating on developing as a player.
At the end of the season, we will speak to Real Madrid about the future before we decide anything.
I know there is interest in Granero from England. Last summer, we had offers but in the the end we decided he would go (on loan) to Getafe.
But, sincerely, I have not spoken to the Tottenham director lately.
Tottenham manager Juande Ramos is said to be interested in the youngster and everyone knows about his keen desire to ship in Spanish talent in the summer.
