Marica set to snub Spurs interest.

Posted on September 24, 2013 by Random Spurs Supporter

The Romanian striker Ciprian Marica now seems likely to be playing in La Liga next season and Rayo Vallecano are the favourites for his signature. Last month his agent stated that he was close to joining Arsenal and in the last week or so it had been suggested that Spurs had become his most likely destination though he was still speaking with three clubs! Now it seems that both North London clubs are set to lose out on the striker as he now appears to favour a switch to Spain. This is what Talksport had to say:-

“If true, you’d have to assume Marica has opted to join the La Liga club ahead of Arsenal or Spurs to secure more regular first team football. It’s unlikely Rayo would be able to compete on a financial front with the north London duo, so the player may have been promised more regular action Campo de Vallecas.”

Let’s analyse that a little more, apparently he was seeking a three year contract on about £60,000 pw and was touted around as a striker available on a free transfer, obviously his being described as a striker was very loosely used term as his goalscoring record stands at just 39 goals in 185 games spanning six seasons. The truth is the player didn’t snub Spurs or Arsenal, neither wanted him and he has perhaps found his level in Spain with a club languishing near the bottom with 4 defeats in 5 and a goal difference of -15.

Where some of these rumours emanate from only his agent will know, but this was always a non starter as his record does not stand up to scrutiny.

3 to “Marica set to snub Spurs interest.”

  1. This guy’s agent has been chatting so much s*** lately. I honestly don’t think there are any big clubs interested in him.

    He has never been a prolific goalscorers and nobody needs him.

  2. craig says:

    ‘Marica’s transfer to Tottenham has unfortunately failed,’ said Victor Becali.

    ‘They would not match his salary – they would not even match half the salary he had at Schalke.’
    And that’s because they didn’t want him.
