Valencia set Spurs deadline over deal for Roberto Soldado.
Tottenham have been set a deadline of 3 August to complete the signing of Roberto Soldado or risk paying Valencia an extra £5m for the striker, reports The Times.
The cash-strapped La Liga outfit are willing to sell Soldado, 28, for around £24m plus add-ons but after that date will insist the Spaniard’s £26m release-clause is met, which could trigger at extra tax payment for the north London club.
Spurs have reportedly turned to Soldado after missing out on both Barcelona’s David Villa, who joined Atletico Madrid, and Christian Benteke, after the Belgian agreed a new long-term contract with Aston Villa on Friday.
Valencia have already lined-up former Tottenham striker Helder Postiga as a replacement for Spain international Soldado, who scored 24 league goals for Los Che last season.
Liverpool have also been linked with Soldado but it is understood the Anfield club are not interested in signing the forward.
