Tottenham and Valencia agree on Soldado fee

Jasper Juinen

After a week of uncertainty it seems as though Tottenham Hotspur have finally met Valencia's asking price for striker Roberto Soldado.

According to a report in Spain from Cadena SER Tottenham Hotspur and Valencia have finally agreed on a fee for striker Reporter Soldado. The report states in part:

Y es que este sábado el director técnico del Tottenham, Franco Baldini, ha comunicado al club español que acepta esa cantidad como precio para hacerse con los servicios del delantero internacional del Valencia, una cifra en la que siempre ha insistido el presidente del club Amadeo Salvo.

If you plug that into the Google machine it tells you that Tottenham Technical Director Franco Baldini has told Valencia that Spurs will pay Soldado's €30 million release clause. The Spanish report claims that the only thing standing between Soldado and Tottenham now are a medical and personal terms with the North London club.

Cadena SER have been on top of these negotiations throughout and I would take it as a good sign that they're reporting that Tottenham have meet the release clause. Meeting the release clause was probably the only way that Valencia would agree to move their most prized asset and now it seems as though this transfer is nearing completion.

Update: The British media are reporting that the €30 million will be paid in a series of installments as opposed to just one lump sum. If true, then that could account for what the two sides have been haggling over for the last week.
