Rafa van der Vaart hoping to avoid sale

van der vaartHamburg playmaker Rafael van der Vaart is keeping his fingers crossed the club’s financial problems won’t result in a raft of exits.

The Rothosen are expected to announce huge annual losses this year and as such speculation in the German press has suggested they could be forced to sell off some big names.

Van der Vaart is one player who hasn’t been linked with a move away having only re-joined the club last summer but forward Son Heung-Min could be one player on the move, with Tottenham and Arsenal said to be interested.

Dutch international Van der Vaart hopes the reported financial problems won’t be as bad as first feared and is keeping his fingers crossed Hamburg might even be able to add to the squad this summer.

“It would be great if we could add to the squad,” the former Real Madrid midfielder said. “We need more experienced players with a winning mentality.”

“But I know there is not much money to strengthen the team,” he continued. “So it is important to make sure our best players stay.”
