Barca Pull Out

Barca Pull Out

Could the way be clear for Spurs to snap up Davinson Sanchez?

The Catalan superpower apparently attempted to sign the Colombian before he joined Ajax last year and have been heavily linked with him again this summer.

However, according to Mundo Deportivo, Barca have gone cold on the idea of signing the much talked about 20 year old.

One reason could be that Ajax reportedly want €50 million (say Mundo Deportivo)  to part with the lad who Ajax keep telling everyone they signed for €5 million not 12 months ago.

Barca out the picture is a good thing. €50million for the kid is not a good thing and one can only hope the valuation has been ‘lost in translation’ if Levy is supposed to be signing a cheque.

  • Aside from cerebrospinal fluid, what's on your mind?

    I have pulled out quite a few times also. Great fun but a bit of a mess

  • Bob August 12, 2017 at 9:12 pm

    Here’s what Kyle Walker said after his City debut ‘I just want to thank Tottenham for taking me out of lower division obscurity and persevering with my complete lack of defending ability. I also want to thank Pockettino for making me an England full back and Alderwiereld for covering my ass every week. ‘It’s great to play football with a smile on my face, knowing I’ve conned City into thinking I’m really good’.

    Oh, sooty, no that’s what he should have said. Oh well, same speech writer as Rose I expect.

    All kicking off at last?

    There has been nothing except the Barkley and Walker stories all summer.

    Now it’s Sanchez, Martial and Barkley. Does this mean Rose and or Eriksen are potential outgoings?

    Did anybody catch ‘606’ tonight? Chavski fans complaining that their buying directors need to start buying somebody and not waiting until Aug 31st – perhaps Levy has been coaching them! One might ask what about the 120 million or so they have already spent!!

    A few bits of Twitter talk are claiming it’s a done deal for us. Some Dutch student journo for example – @SjorsvanVeen
    Could be bobbins though…

    The general mood is that this guy is a real talent.

    In other news, if we’re genuinely interested in Martial (with Rose going the other way perhaps) I’d say that’s probably the end of the Barkley trail. But this is all complete guess-work, obviously.

    Would Sanchez walk into many top Premier League sides?

    **** off are they. Have a lie down in a darkened room mate. Dearie me…

    Sorry H, I got that wrong. They’re not looking at him anymore. You were spot on, apologies.

    • Still Nil Nil August 12, 2017 at 7:38 pm

      That post looks like a man having a row with himself!

      • Ronan August 12, 2017 at 7:40 pm

        The big man was dead right all along. Gotta hold your hands up when you get it wrong!

            He was misquoted. Or taken out of context. Or being ironical.

        • Harry Hotspur August 12, 2017 at 7:54 pm

          Oh don’t be ridiculous. No apologies…

    Walker named man of the match

    • Jim,Newry Spur. August 12, 2017 at 7:28 pm

      Never saw it, how did he look.

      • a Waddle and a fork August 12, 2017 at 7:37 pm

        he was bombing forward — olaying very high

        • Chi Y-Word August 12, 2017 at 8:11 pm

          Ole!

  • Still Nil Nil August 12, 2017 at 7:26 pm

    Are there any media outlets whose reporting we can trust (to a certain degree)?

    If some rags/shite tv report stuff, its poo pooed but with others it might be conceived as a possibility.

    Are any reports close to what Gladys or other itk outlets and is this Davinson report along those lines?

    Personally I trust none of them.

    The only thing I trust is when a player has actually signed on the dotted line and is pictured with a spurs shirt.

    Or has fucked off a la walker.

    But on such reporting, my views are:

    I actually think if this guy could be signed he’d be a good acquisition but like most players would need at least a season to acclimatise like lamela and eriksen and vertonghen before him.

    Only Toby and wanyama have gone in and hit the ground running.

    As much as I like rose, and I was one of the few who supported him in the season or 2 before poch came in, I think he clearly does want to foxtrot oscar up north so if spurs can get martial or rashford (my preferred option) and shaw, plus some cash, that would be good.

    • a Waddle and a fork August 12, 2017 at 7:48 pm

      I would snap your hand off for Rashford but he is never gonna leave Utd. They value him far too greatly. He has a fantastic future.

    • gloster1861 August 12, 2017 at 7:52 pm

      And Fosu-Mensah would be good.

      • maximum spursman August 12, 2017 at 8:25 pm

        Sorry Glos I remarked yesterday that I think TFM gone on loan to Palace – I agree with you.

  • Spursy August 12, 2017 at 7:24 pm

    Big match tomorrow.

    • Still Nil Nil August 12, 2017 at 7:27 pm

      Nah, manure and wet spam will be shit

      The spurs match could be interesting.

      • Spursy August 12, 2017 at 7:31 pm

        Hi Nilster, it could be good!

        • Still Nil Nil August 12, 2017 at 7:33 pm

          Hi Spursy, how you doin’?

          • Spursy August 12, 2017 at 8:48 pm

            Really well, Nilly. Just home from holiday. You okay?

    • Jim,Newry Spur. August 12, 2017 at 7:27 pm

      I miss Brian Moore, sure is, defeat unthinkable.

      • Spursy August 12, 2017 at 7:31 pm

        Un-thinkable (shudders).

      • Still Nil Nil August 12, 2017 at 7:33 pm

        Yeah don’t make rugby playing lawyers like him anymore

        • Jim,Newry Spur. August 12, 2017 at 8:00 pm

          Lol.

  • RecaroN17 August 12, 2017 at 7:23 pm

    Maybe things are looking up at last. A win tomorrow and a decent signing or two next week will confirm it.

    • Jim,Newry Spur. August 12, 2017 at 7:26 pm

      Yeah, let’s put down a marker, show we mean business, then give The OAPs a doing.

  • East Stand August 12, 2017 at 7:10 pm

    Foist?

    • East Stand August 12, 2017 at 7:11 pm

      Did you read the post first though, otherwise you are cheating. You left the blocks early.

      • McG ⚽⚽ August 12, 2017 at 7:20 pm

        I did as it happens. Can’t claim that to always be the case!

    • East Stand August 12, 2017 at 7:15 pm

      Who reckons Barkley’s still gonna happen?

      • McG ⚽⚽ August 12, 2017 at 7:19 pm

        Depends on whether someone nips in I recon, dangerous game if Poch really wants him. I hope we manage it. This Davinson looks like top business, if I had to choose….

      • Jim,Newry Spur. August 12, 2017 at 7:20 pm

        Hard to know, love to see him at Spurs, properly coached, less of the headless chicken.

    • Jim,Newry Spur. August 12, 2017 at 7:22 pm

      We’re drug testing East Stand.
