Brazil star claims Spurs snub


White Hart Lane - Tottenham Hotspur News

Brazilian star Leandro Damiao has reiterated that he turned down a move to Tottenham.

Spurs are reported to have made a bid of £14million for the 22-year-old striker after having a bid rejected in January by Internacional.

Damiao is regarded as one of the brightest talents in world football and has insisted that he is happy to remain in Brazil until after the World Cup ends in his homeland in 2014.

“I’ve got Tottenham’s proposal, but Inter thought I’d better stay,” he told UOL.

“I will try to reach the World Cup playing for Inter. But have to wait for the window to pass and close.”

Juventus and Paris Saint Germain are also monitoring his progress. It looks like another ‘nearly’ case for Spurs of missing out on a true talent.

Have something to tell us about this article?
