After downing AC Milan in the Champions League round of 16 clash on Wednesday night, Tottenham defensive midfielder Sandro is being pursued by the Italian outfit, with reports they will make him an offer of at least £20 million.
Sandro shone for Tottenham during the round of 16 Champions League tie, particularly in the second leg, where Harry Redknapp singled the 21 year old out for praise post-match.
“I thought Sandro was immense in midfield,” Redknapp told the Tottenham website.
“He’s powerful, strong, aggressive. He’s got the ability to run and work for 90 minutes and I felt he turned in a great performance for us.
“He’s in the Brazilian squad and a young player with a big future.”
AC Milan are reportedly keen to find a long term replacement for Genaro Gattuso, who was suspended for 4 UEFA matches after head butting Tottenham assistant manager Joe Jordan in the Spurs first clash with AC.
Though Harry Redknapp has made it very clear he doesn’t want to sell any of his players, should Tottenham not qualify for 2011/12 Champions League at the end of the season, AC Milan believe this coupled with offering the right price will possibly tempt Sandro to request a transfer
Sandro was linked to AC Milan in 2009 when he was playing for Inter Milan, but Tottenham were able to snatch the Brazilian international from under AC’s noses. Since then, Sandro has gone from strength to strength with Spurs, and AC will no doubt be interested in the player that helped dismiss them for the Champions League.
