Giovani dos Santos to leave Tottenham?

March 8, 2009

Spanish-language news centers such as ESPN Deportes and Mediotiempo have recently posted articles on their websites discussing Giovani dos Santos’s imminent departure from White Hart Lane. According to these reports, Sven-Goran Eriksson has stated that Giovani’s move from Tottenham was definite and that it would be confirmed in “the next coming days.” Sven’s statements were made during a press conference held on March 6th in which he revealed the line-up for Mexico’s friendly against Bolivia.

Despite fielding dos Santos during Mexico’s February 11th World Cup Qualifier against the United States, Sven has reiterated that he will only call up players who see regular minutes and rotation for their respective team. While voicing discontent over Giovani’s lack of minutes with Tottenham, Sven stated that he would “not reveal Giovani’s new club” but that he “support[s] his transfer.” When asked if he had any input over the young player’s decision to transfer, he replied, “no, I had nothing to do with this” but that he wants “him to play and it does not matter where.”

Though it is still unknown as to which club will host Giovani dos Santos, Sven’s statements were made at a time in which he also addressed Omar Bravo’s return to Mexico from Spain’s Deportivo La Coruña. “If they are not starters on their respective team, it is better that they return [to Mexico]. It is not about being in Europe simply to be there without playing, especially if you are only 26 or 28 years old. It is even more crucial at 18.” With regards to Giovani, Sven alluded to the fact that Giovani may be leaving the English Premiership entirely considering that “he can not, at this moment, transfer from one Premiership club to another.”

There was much speculation that Giovani was going to be sold to Lyon during the January transfer window, so could they now be at the top of the list to acquire dos Santos on a temporary loan? Will Giovani make a move back to Spain or will he stay in England but play for a Championship league team? Is a move to Mexico a realistic prediction?

    Well, these are interesting thoughts. I think they are true. However, everything is
    relative and ambiguous to my mind.
