We all know the club have been watching Galatasaray winger Bruma for some time and we have read all the reports about him refusing to sign a new contract. The Turkish league is not a top tier league but there are tax advantages with playing there.
The press quote figures claiming that is his value or that is what he is rated at and these prices are often entirely different from what a player is actually worth. Confusion reigns when they don't bother to convert from euros to pounds and this is compounded by lazy websites.
There is more than one report from Turkey that Tottenham have placed a bid for the Portuguese winger, said to be £17.03 million (€20m - AUS$29.16m - US$20.95m), which has been immediately turned down.
Bruma has reportedly told the hierarchy that it is a good offer and that they should accept it and allow him to leave, although previously he has said he will not force his way out, which puts the club in a stronger position and may push any sale inconveniently to the end of the window.
"Let me go to England. I win too, you win too. "
Lucas Podolski has left for China and so the sale of Bruma will not go down well with the supporters, A decision whether he leaves or not will be left to Galatasaray president Dursun Özbek. Contingency plans have been made and the player earmarked to take over should Bruma be allowed to leave is 26-year-old (27 in November) Garry Rodrigues of PAOK in Greece.
