Tottenham’s transfer tactics have taken a turn theses days.
All the usual mucking about agreeing terms with players – then agreeing over nothing with their clubs would appear to have been abandoned.
Again, Spurs have sounded out a destination – before confirming – with for want-away ace Mousa Dembele.
French outlet RMC are confident that our big Belgian could soon be on a slow boat to China.
This has legs as the figure quoted is what Gladys recently suggested; the magic number to unchain Mousa from his current Spurs deal.
Whilst the fee is thought to be €60 million, the final amount minus the horrific local taxes would equate to some €3o million.
Interestingly enough this piece suggests that there is no animosity and Poch doesn’t want Dembele on his books any more either.
The ‘only’ potential stumbling point might be whether Mousa wants to spend a while in South East Asia.
Quite frankly, if I weer him I’d leap at the chance.
Not too sharply of course, gotta be mindful of the old hip, eh?
