Roberto Soldado: Has secured his move to Tottenham from Valencia

Soldado has become Tottenham's most expensive player, arriving from Spain for around £26m.

The Spain international is expected to make his debut against familiar opposition, when Spurs host Espanyol on 10 August.

A statement from Tottenham read: "We're delighted to confirm the signing of Roberto Soldado from Valencia after successfully completing his medical."

Soldado began his career at Real Madrid, but three years ago he moved back to his hometown club, where he scored 30 goals in 46 games last season.

The capture of Soldado means Spurs have broken their transfer record twice in four weeks, with Paulinho's £17m arrival in July eclipsing the £16m fee the club paid for Luka Modric in 2008.

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
