It has all but been confirmed that Moussa Sissoko will be leaving Tottenham in the summer with L'Equipe reporting that his representatives are to meet with Tottenham officials to discuss how best he can leave the club in the summer, in other words, to work out a joint exit strategy.
It is in the clubs best interests to help him leave quickly in any way we can, fortunately for us it means he won't now cost the initial £30 million (€35.29m - AUS$49.31m - US$37.63m), as we only pay an initial lump sum and £5 million (€5.88m - AUS$8.22m - US$6.27m) for each season of his initial contract he was here.
Thus we can see him at half of what we bought him for and still not make a loss on him thankfully, hence the minimum £15 million (€17.84m - AUS$24.66m - US$18.82m) being quoted that we are looking for.
National manager Didier Deschamps dropped from the French squad and Sissoko can have nobody to blame but himself. Nobody makes decisions for him he decides if he is going to fully bond with Mauricio Pochettino's footballing philosophy and therefore be able to give 100% and he hasn't.
He has chosen to go through the motions and thus he is incapable of performing at a level that we require. That isn't to say he won't give his best, but your best when you don't believe in something is nowhere near your best when you do believe in something, as we are seeing on the pitch.
