Tottenham Hotspur Football Club (t/a Funtime Novelties Enfield Ltd) have recieved what is understand to be the first formal enquiry for Toby Alderweireld.
The Alderweireld enquiry is from another Premier League side and this enquiry has arrived precisely in response to Poch’s siren song of refusing to play the Belgian.
Which of course, carries its own burdens.
Gladys understands that no less than 3 of our first team players – so far – have been labelled as ‘potentially available’ and that whilst zero effort is being expended by the club in order to market/foist them upon others.
Spurs are operating on what was described to me as a ‘need to know’ basis.
Which basically boils down to – if you phone up Daniel and say you need such and such a player – he’ll let you know what that player will cost you.
One can never underestimate the specifics in the language Levy uses.
“I am 100 per cent confident that every player we want to keep I can assure you will be playing for Tottenham Hotspur next season,”
…is what our illustrious leader said back in January.
The bulk of players are not for sale under any circumstances, and this is something that both those individuals and their management have had spelled out to them in the most forthright terms.
However, it will still necessitate some artistry from Levy & Co. this summer to balance the whole player retention/player sales equation.
One cannot charge fans top dollar and then expect them to watch what are essentially leftovers – chase a ball about.
