Spurs offered solid fee for player they need to offload, but want more money

Vlad Chiriches might finally be on his way out.

Vlad Chiriches isn't going to feature for Tottenham Hotspur next season now that Toby Alderweireld has signed up, but that's not stopping Daniel Levy and co. from trying to get the biggest fee possible for him. Turkish giants Galatasaray have reportedly offered €5m and Spurs are allowing Vlad to talk contract with Gala, but they haven't accepted the offer yet.

On one hand, I don't think Spurs should haggle too hard over Vlad, and should just get a decent fee and get his contract off the books. On the other hand, Levy and Franco Baldini know what they're doing. They'll probably still manage to offload Vlad and get some extra money and/or some performance-based incentives or a sell-on clause.

There's always the possibility that Vlad could refuse to make a move to Turkey or make absurd demands, but that seems unlikely. Gala are qualified for Champions League and pay pretty good wages. This is far from done, but it has a pretty high probability of happening.
