Valencia have admitted that prolific striker Roberto Soldado could leave the club this summer but will only go if his £26 million buy-out clause is activated, reports.

Tottenham and Liverpool are interested in signing Soldado, with Spurs sending their technical director Franco Baldini to Spain to negotiate with Valencia, while the clubs manager Andre Villas-Boas admitted on Tuesday that Spurs were interest in the striker.

Despite the interest from the Premier League sides, Valencia’s president Amadeo Salvo claims that if Soldado is to leave it will be on the Spanish clubs terms.

“Soldado can go if he wants – for €30million and under our conditions,” he told reporters.

“Valencia never had any intention of selling Soldado. If he goes then it is because the €30 million figure has been met, not a cent less or a cent more”.

Soldado has a fantastic scoring record for Valencia, with the Spaniard finding the net 81 times in 141 appearances.

Spurs are desperate to sign a quality striker this summer to help the club reach the Premier League’s top four and Soldado is now thought to be Andre Villas-Boas main target for this transfer window.

Spurs turned to Soldado after missing out on David Villa, who moved to Atletico Madrid, and Christan Benteke, who signed a new contract with Aston Villa.
