Swap deals in football don’t really exist. Player contracts are so convoluted that clubs don’t trade players like Top Trump cards or marbles in the school playground.
Just like the ‘oh yeah, they still owe us such and such for the last guy we sold them, so we’ll just knock that off’ is also the construction of more than mildly cretinous minds.
So for the The Daily Star‘s Luke Gardener to cobble together a Supermarket Sweep clearance type deal is plain embarrassing.
As reported on this blog recently, the £200million valuation placed upon Harry Kane was a throwaway remark on a Spanish sports show, opposed to informed comment.
Bale, Benzema and Modric in return for Kane is the work of a dull child. The salaries of these three varyingly super superstars alone would negate such a plan, but to apply common sense to the proposal is to give off the wrong impression. This garbage mustn’t be taken seriously, just dismissed.
Kane’s going nowhere. He’s staying at Spurs (boom boom).
