This source suggests, perhaps wisely, that one of the Brazilians at Eastlands may be on his way to north London.
The Brazilian international has lost his place in the Manchester City line-up of late, which is believed to have left him disillusioned with life at Eastlands.
Elano cost City £6.5million when he arrived from Shakhtar Donetsk last summer, and reports suggest Harry Redknapp will offer £10million to take him to White Hart Lane.
Although the Blues don’t exactly need the money following the takeover from the Abu Dhabi United Group, Mark Hughes could consider selling as he looks to reshape his squad. (fansfc.com)
This source is normally pretty good at spotting decent rumours that may well end up being a reality rather than pure fiction. Elano has started just nine league games this term, which given the great season he had last term, seems to suggest that Mark Hughes doesn’t rate the Brazilian as much as Sven did. It does seem likely he will look for pastures new as the 27 year old seeks to secure his place in the national team set up. Tottenham could do with more combative, attacking midfielder and the former Santos man is pretty adaptable and can play across the middle and out wide as well as being adept at playing in the hole behind the strikers. Do Spurs fans think Harry will make a move for Elano and if so do they think it would be a good signing?
Brand New Feature. (1-10 scale, One = Pure make believe, Ten = is a transfer all but complete)
