Polite notice: this piece has nothing to do with the music of Mr. Rick Parfitt or Mr. Francis Rossi.
We reported this week that a source close to the club told us that Spurs CEO Daniel levy was giving serious consideration to taking Gareth Bale on loan for the remaining year of his Real Madrid contract.
This evening, the suggestion has been made to me by the same source that Daniel Levy is also keen to repel all borders in respect of Harry Kane also. The club is naturally well aware of the external pressures in relation to their key player, all clubs – even THFC – have extensive media awareness.
My understanding now is that Mr. Levy would seek that Spurs look their very best when fans begin to return to the stadium; to put the business’ best foot forward. To this end, the offer of a significant pay rise is being constructed for Kane. Golden handcuffs, if you will.
For me, this sentiment makes a huge amount of sense and almost certainly hints at Levy/the club believing that a fan presence at games will have an influence.
I take a view that at this stage, worry about debt is almost academic… I doubt Mr. Levy would say that out loud privately, let alone in mixed company.
