The latest update comes from Fran Guaita, a journalist with Valencia-based radio station Cadena Ser, who has remained close to the proceedings throughout Spurs bid to lure the 28-year-old to White Hart Lane.
Guiata’s tweet says an issue with the commission for Soldado’s agent, Alberto Toldra, has put the deal temporarily on hold…
OJO. La operación entre VCF y Tottenham está PARADA ahora mismo por una comisión de otra operación que reclama Toldrá Consulting al VCF.
