Mallorca's Juan Arango says that he could have joined Tottenham in the summer.Mallorca star Juan Arango says that he could have joined Tottenham in the summer.
The Venezuelan international was a target for Tottenham boss Martin Jol, who had made a verbal é¼3.2 million (£2.1 million) offer for the 25-year-old.
Arango's agent Salvador Maestre says that Spurs never made their bid concrete during the summer, and the player decided to sign a new deal with Mallorca.
After signing a new three-year deal with the club, Arango has started the new Primera Liga season in good style, bagging a hat-trick against Real Sociedad.
The Spanish side now say that due to the player's popularity back in his native Venezuela, any club wanting to sign him would have to come in with a vastly increased offer.
