The 25-year-old has struggled to re-establish himself in Spurs' midfield in the second half of the season after suffering a calf injury in December, and was labelled "not up to it at the moment ahead of other people" by head coach Tim Sherwood after being overlooked for the April 19 game against Fulham.
Sherwood's future at Tottenham has been the subject of intense speculation for the last few months with a host of names linked with replacing him at White Hart Lane.
Sherwood was handed an 18-month contract when he succeeded Andre Villas-Boas in December, but that has not prevented reports he will be shown the door at the end of the term, with the likes of Frank de Boer and Mauricio Pochettino touted for the role.
Speaking in his native Brazil, Sandro has claimed that should Sherwood depart it could mean a fresh start for him at White Hart Lane.
"He (Sherwood) will leave at the end of the season," Sandro is quoted as saying to ESPN Brazil. "Then, new coach, new everything."
Sandro, who has been linked with a transfer to Sao Paulo, is unsure what his own future holds, but says a switch back to his homeland would be difficult given Tottenham's valuation of him.
"I do not know anything yet (about my future), but I'm happy to have my name talked about with a club the size of Sao Paulo," added Sandro.
"(But) it would be very difficult to leave on loan. If I leave, I would have to be sold, and it is not close. Other teams have come, but with little money."
