Spanish striker eyes move abroad.
Valencia striker Roberto Soldado has hinted that his future may lie overseas this summer as he spends more time with his British based international colleagues, Sky Sports reports.
He is currently away with the Spanish national side ahead of the Confederations Cup and admits that spending time with the likes of Juan Mata, Fernando Torres and David Silva has got him thinking about leaving his homeland.
The 28-year-old had been a target to Tottenham Hotspur but a move looked dead in the water, however, he has given them fresh hope by saying: “I’m not closing the doors to anyone.
“I know that some of my Spain team-mates have left Spain and done very well. The Premier League and the Bundesliga are very attractive leagues for any player because of the atmosphere and reputation of these countries.”
Valencia failed to qualify for the Champions League next season, but Copa Del Rey winners Atletico Madrid are reported to be lining up a move to replace Radamel Falcao who joined French side Monaco earlier this month, but it is not a move that Soldado holds much stock in.
“Atletico are a winning team and they have proved that in the last couple of years. Their coach has changed the dynamic at the club. It’s a huge club and it’s an honour that they are interested in me, but I’m at Valencia, I have a contract there and for now I want to complete it.”
