Report: Roberto Soldado could have future at Tottenham, if Emmanuel Adebayor is sold

Tottenham could keep ahold of Soldado, if Adebayor leaves to sign with Aston Villa.

According to the Daily Mail, Tottenham could keep ahold of Roberto Soldado this summer, if Emmanuel Adebayor’s proposed move to Aston Villa goes through.

As reported by the Mirror yesterday, Adebayor has been sent to the Under-21 side to train this pre-season, as Mauricio Pochettino looks to sell him. Aston Villa boss Tim Sherwood is keen on bringing him to Villa Park this summer, with a potential loan deal mooted.

However, the Mail report claims that Spurs would prefer to offload him permanently this summer, although they are increasingly confident that the Togolese striker will be leaving White Hart Lane this summer.

This could end up playing a key role in the future of another Tottenham player, with Roberto Soldado’s future at Spurs also in doubt.

AS reported yesterday that the Spanish striker was in talks to join Sevilla, but the Mail believe he could be kept at the club if the Adebayor deal goes through.

He is well liked at White Hart Lane, by both fans and managment staff, and has never created issues about his role in the team - even when moved to substitute role following the breakthrough of Harry Kane.

His goalscoring problems look no closer to being solved, but he is a viable back-up option to Kane, and it appears as if the Lilywhites are open to keeping Soldado at the club should the move to take Adebayor to Villa Park be completed in the coming weeks.
