Will Alvaro Negredo become a Tottenham Hotspur in 2014? This is the question that Premier League footballer insiders have been discussing about the talented Manchester City striker and when one considers the recent comments about Alvaro Negredo from Tim Sherwood, the manager of the Tottenham Hotspurs it seems evident that he intends to pursue the possibility of making Alvaro Negredo a part of his team.
Recently the Tottenham Hotspurs manager compared Alvaro Negredo to English legend Alan Shearer for his ability to score which is tantamount to proclaiming him a living legend because in the eyes of many English footballer observers there has never been a more effective striker in the Premier League than Alan Shearer.
Ironically, he made the comparison the the night before his team was about to take on Manchester City without the injured Alvaro Negredo and which makes one wonder if he was sending a not subtle message to Alvaro Negredo that he is a huge fan of the player and he would not have to worry about being a regular member of the starting eleven if he played for the Tottenham Hotspurs which is definitely not the situation that he enjoys as a member of Manchester City.
The Tottenham Hotspurs have not been competitive in their games against Manchester City since striker Gareth Bale left for Real Madrid. The Tottenham Hotspurs are a team that misses having a superior scorer on the pitch and considering the fact that Manchester City has demonstrated that they can win with or without him many Premier League football insiders feel that Alvaro Negredo might be willing to consider a move to a team where he would not have to wonder if he would be a selection to the starting eleven in every game.
Alvaro Negredo is entering the prime of his career and after reading the comments of the Tottenham Hotspurs manager and then looking at how his Manchester United counterpart Wayne Rooney was relegated to the bench in 2013 for Robin Van Persie it would not be surprising if he expressed a willingness to consider that option in 2014. It is very unlikely that Tottenham Hotspurs manager Tim Sherwood would have expressed such views about a rival player unless he had some information which intimated that the player might be interested in making a move if he felt there was interest by the other party.
The Tottenham Hotspurs have expressed their interest in Alvaro Negredo in the most overt way possible and now the only question in 2014 will be whether that interest is acted upon by the recipient, Alvaro Negredo.
