Spurs given Soldado ultimatum

Valencia president Amadeo Salvo has given Tottenham an ultimatum in their pursuit of striker Roberto Soldado.

Reports on Tuesday claimed that the Premier League side were unwilling to meet the €30 million valuation placed on Soldado’s head by Valencia.

But Salvo has insisted that Spain international Soldado, who scored 24 goals in 33 La Liga games last season, is not for sale unless his price tag is paid in full and upfront.

"Soldado can go if he wants - for €30 million and under our conditions,” he said. "Valencia never had any intention of selling Soldado. If he goes then it is because the €30 million figure has been met, not a cent less or a cent more.

"The buying club will also have to accept Valencia's conditions of payment also. We agreed to meet Tottenham again to discuss the ways of paying and we did that because we understood that his buy-out clause would be met.

"Speaking about ways that deals are paid is normal and this will be done in a way that suits the financial department of Valencia and not that of any other clubs."

Tottenham head coach Andre Villas-Boas had confirmed that his side were interested in signing Spain forward Soldado, 28, as they look to bolster their attacking options ahead of the new season.­­­­­­­
