But that hasn’t stopped the Valencia striker’s agent from using Spurs as a little negotiating pawn to get the big boys into action.
Jose Luis Tamargo spewed a few manipulative words to try and sell his client to the highest bidder,
“Many clubs have contacted me to ask about the chances of a player who is guaranteed to score goals in England. But I am convinced if Spurs present an offer Valencia will study the subject.”
Yes, he is convinced that if Spurs bid for Villa that Valencia will look at the bid. Thanks for that. But with the Big Four, as well as every big club in the entire world, on alert should Villa decide to leave (he’s very much attached to life in Spain) the chances of Tottenham nicking in there are pretty slim.
Then again, so was the chance of someone paying 16.5 million for Darren Bent. ZING!
