AVB: Hamburg must improve Rafa bid

Published Add your comment

Andre Villas-Boas has accused Hamburg of disrespecting Tottenham in their bid to sign Rafael van der Vaart.

The Bundesliga club have vowed to do everything in their power to land Van der Vaart, whose wife Sylvie works in the German city, but their initial offer of around £8million falls way short of Tottenham's valuation.

The London club are reported to be holding out for £14million for the Holland forward, and Villas-Boas is adamant he will not let the player go on the cheap. He told a press conference: "We have had interest from Hamburg, but an offer of that dimension is not something the player deserves." Tottenham should be respected as a club. (The transfer) doesn't seem to be happening."
