Tottenham have made a bid for Bologna midfielder Gaston Ramirez according to the player’s agent but the stumbling block was the players wages.
Ramirez has just come back from Olympic duty with Uruguay and has been tracked by Liverpool and Spurs all summer but it’s only Spurs who have made a formal bid of around £16m for the player.
His agent Oscar Betancourt said :
“It is not true that there is an agreement with Liverpool,” Betancourt told Calciomercato.
“We just talked to some officials close to the leadership of the club, but nothing more. The only concrete offer is that of Tottenham who came to offer €16m for the player.”
‘ Deal with Tottenham didn’t happen only cause of salary. Gaston won’t leave Bologna if salary stays pretty the same.The only concrete bid from England came from Tottenham 16m euros, but they offered too low wages to the player. But we are aware that Tottenham might raise salary offer if Modric will be sold to Real Madrid. We stand by.’
I swear our tightness costs us some great players.
