Spurs will try for Sandro for a third time

Spurs Will Try For Sandro For A Third Time

Spurs will try for Sandro for a third time

Another on our radar is Barcelona youngster Sandro Ramirez and it would appear the Spanish club are willing to do business.

Sandro Ramírez Castillo, known simply as Sandro, is a 20-year-old (21 in July) Spanish striker who can also play the attacking wide roles. He has a contract until 2017 so unless they want to sign him to a new contract they will have to sell now to get a maximum price and that appears to be what they are willing to do.

We made an approach for him in the winter transfer window and last summer. We are trying once again to see if we have better luck with UEFA Champions League football to offer. 

Sandro has taken part in 20 games this season, 10 in La Liga, 4 Copa del Rey, 3 UEFA Champions League, 2 Supercopa, 1 Club World Cup. That all sounds impressive, but it only totals 851 minutes, the equivalent of 9.5 games. 

In that time, the Spanish Under-21 international scored 3 goals and had 2 assists. His season was cut short with a tear in his abductor muscle so missed the last 9 La Liga games as well as cup games.

Newcastle United were trying to sign him in January but there was little chance of luring him to Tyneside and probably even less now. The fly in the ointment may be Celta Vigo who are currently refusing to negotiate with Barcelona over the potential sale of striker  Nolito. If he arrives Sandro can go, if they can't sign him Sandro may have to stay at Barcelona.

Reports in Spain suggest he is not happy wit starting only four La Liga games in the first half of the season, hardly surprising when they have Neymar, Suarez, and Messi to call upon. The young striker has a £9.48 million (€12m - US$13.73m) although Barcelona would possibly try to insert a buy-back clause for a lower fee. We do not entertain buy-back clauses as we then have no control over an asset. However, the Spanish press are suggesting he will be available this summer for just £7.9-million (€10m - US$11.44m).

The Spanish giants turned down a loan move offer from Real Betis in January and now with only 2 years left on his contract, there is little or no benefit to Barcelona. The local press in Spain are saying that Luis Enrique has decided Sandro doesn't have a future at barcelona, which is a complete turnaround from January.
