Tottenham’s Giovani dos Santos could be set to move to Inter Milan as part of a swap deal for goalkeeper Julio Cesar, his agent has revealed.
The Mexican, who recently won a gold medal for his country at the Olympics, has failed to cement a place in the first team at White Hart Lane since joining from Barcelona in 2008, and has had loan spells at a number of clubs including Ipswich Town and Galatasaray.
However, the 23-year-old looks set to leave the Premier League after his representative Vicente Montes confirmed a swap deal to bring Cesar to Spurs and take Dos Santos to the San Siro could be in the offing.
“A swap deal with Julio Cesar? Often journalists talk without knowing the truth, but that is not the case here. Inter is one of the possibilities, I can’t deny that.”
Cesar, 32, has won a plethora of honours since signing for Inter from Flamengo in 2005, including five Serie A titles and one Champions League crown, along with over 60 appearances for his country.
And Montes is hopeful a deal can be done to revitalise the Mexico international’s career in a similar fashion.
“Giovani wants the situation resolved as soon as possible and in the next few days we will try to find a solution, but negotiating with Tottenham is not easy,” he said.
“I would say it’s 50 percent likely he’ll go to Italy, 50 percent to Spain. There are other Italian clubs that want him and we’re evaluating the offers.”
