Gaston Ramirez’s proposed move from Bologna to Tottenham has broken down over wage demands, according to the player’s agent. Costly: Ramirez is demanding a pretty pay-packet (Picture: PA) The highly-rated wideman has been tipped to quit the Serie A outfit after enjoying his best season to date last term, scoring eight goals and collecting a hatful of assists in 32 matches. Liverpool were thought to be leading the race, but the Reds have failed to agree terms on a deal, with Bologna refusing to sell on the cheap. However, in a silent move organised last month, Spurs agreed a £13 million deal for the player, only for it collapse at the last minute over salary demands. The news was revealed by Ramirez’s agent Oscar Betancourt, who expects Tottenham to return once the sale of Luka Modric to Real Madrid is completed. ‘The only solid offer is the one from Tottenham, who offered £12.6m,’ Betancourt explained. ‘But the deal didn’t go through because Spurs offered too low a wage to the player and if the wage difference is minimal he would stay at Bologna.’ ‘Tottenham could raise their offer if they sell Modric and in that case the deal could be done, otherwise Ramirez will stay another year at Bologna. We also talked with Liverpool but nothing more.’ A pacy left-footed winger who can play on either flank, Ramirez is one of the best talents in Europe and is also attracting interest from Inter Milan.
