Sandro, who aims to represent his country at this summer’s World Cup, will still have two years left on his contract at White Hart Lane when the transfer window reopens. Ex-Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini, now in charge of Galatasaray, wanted to sign the midfield man for the Blues in 2012, but the move was unsuccessful. The Italian looks likely to face further disappointment this summer unless Tottenham change their stance on the popular player’s future at the club.
