    VDV To Schalke?

    Wednesday 30 May 2012








    [color:f564=blue !important][color:f564=blue ! important]Tottenham Hotspur could face the prospect of losing Rafael van der Vaart to German side Schalke 04 in a £10m transfer, the Daily Mail has reported.



    The newspaper adds that the move appeals to the Netherlands international for familial as well as [color:f564=blue !important][color:f564=blue !important]football reasons. Van der Vaart’s wife, Sylvie, spends much of her time away from [color:f564=blue !important][color:f564=blue !important]London in Germany, working for German television, based barely 100km from the Schalke training ground.

    Van der Vaart is also said to be interested in the move to Germany
    because of a guarantee given to him by the club that he would be central
    to their play, rather than the more peripheral figure he at times is at
    White Hart Lane. Van der Vaart has to compete with Luka Modric to be
    Tottenham’s main [color:f564=blue !important][color:f564=blue !important]playmaker, and is often withdrawn from action early.

    The 28-year-old refused to be drawn on his future when asked recently,
    insisting he was only thinking about competing for his country at Euro
    2012. The Mail however insists Schalke would have little problem
    meeting van der Vaart’s wage demands, as well as handing over £10m to
    Tottenham for the former Real Madrid player.

    I think a lot of you are forgetting the great goals he scored for us last season. We are not talking about tap ins as most of Ade's was. The man has great vision and I would not want to lose him.

    As for Huntelar he has been at a lot of clubs in the last few seasons and is moved on by most clubs after a short time which makes me think he is not a consistent player. There are a lot better around.

    I want to keep all our top players and add to them not lose them. If VDV goes then Modric..... as Ferguson is now showing interest... then we are f*cked.

    But then why is he either sent out on loan or sold by all the clubs he joins, if he's that great they would want to keep him.
