Zenit lead race for Sandro

Published 2 Comments

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Sandro could still leave White Hart Lane this summer, with Zenit St Petersburg and Napoli both interested, according to Sky Italia.

The 25-year old Brazilian has been linked with a possible move away from north London after a ropey season at the club, where he fell down the pecking order.

Under the reign of ex-Spurs boss Tim Sherwood last season, the defensive midfielder only made a measly 25 appearances.

This was partly because of his apparent low work rate and lazy ways, but mainly because of the row between the player and manager.

Towards the end of the season Sandro went to Twitter to say: “Good morning guys, just to let you know that I’m not injured!”

Of course this angered volatile coach Sherwood, who replied in a post-match interview after his sides 3-1 win over Fulham.

“He’s not up to it at the moment. I don't care about the tweet, I don't go on Twitter. He can tweet what he wants. He's not injured, and he's fit to play, but he's not selected because he's not up to it at the moment ahead of other people,” Sherwood responded.

Sandro has been a part of the Spurs side for four years now, scoring three goals in 76 games and enjoying a solid spell at the club.

But now it seems it could be time for the player to move on, although Spurs have previously demanded in the region of £20million for a deal. It also offers the player the chance to link-up with former Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas once again.

Italian side Napoli are also in the race, but are unlikely to stump up the asking price.
