Napoli frustrated in bid for Tottenham midfielder Sandro

Napoli face missing out on Tottenham midfielder Sandro.

The People says Rafael Benitez did have an interest in Tottenham's midfielder, but will not pay the asking price set by Daniel Levy.

Spurs' chief decision-maker has a reputation for driving a hard bargain but Benitez was stunned by the £16m fee.

Sandro is also interesting AS Roma.

Spurs football chief Franco Baldini flew to Italy on the weekend for transfer business, which includes talks with former club Roma.
