Reported Spurs and Leeds target Lucas Vazquez fails to agree new Real Madrid contract
Reported Spurs and Leeds United target, Lucas Vazquez, is now said to be listening to offers after failing to agree a new deal with Real Madrid.
Marca reports that talks between the club and Vazquez have stalled, with no agreement reached after the first round of discussions this week.
They claim that the player is now ‘listening to offers’ from other clubs, which could well include the likes of Leeds and Spurs. The Daily Star (printed edition, 28/2) claimed that both Premier League clubs were keen on the Spaniard.
Everton, too, have also been credited with holding an interest in the impressive La Liga ace.
Previous reports have claimed Leeds were willing to pay Vazquez around £83k-a-week to move to Elland Road. Spurs, meanwhile, have held a long-term interest in the player, who can play up top or in the wide areas.
It remains to be seen if Premier League clubs will indeed follow that initial interest up. However, it does look like Vazquez could be on the move, with a number of clubs bound to be open to doing a deal.
TBR View: Vazquez would suit either club, he’d be a huge coup for Leeds
Leeds haven’t had the best of luck with both of their last big-money signings from La Liga. Rodrigo has struggled for form and fitness, as has Diego Llorente.
But Vazquez comes from a club renowned for winning. He’s won the Champions League three times, something you don’t do if you don’t have something about you.
He isn’t the most prolific, with just 26 Madrid goals in over 200 games. But he has assisted over 50, suggesting he does play a big role in the attacking third. That, of course, is something both Leeds and Spurs could benefit from.
