Conte Has Demanded That Levy Retains Kane And Is Gifted A War Chest

By Harry Hotspur -

I’m not sure what one might call this suggestion, based upon Daniel Levy’s track record in the transfer market, but The Sun believes that Antonio Conte wants the best of both worlds if he is to come to Tottenham. The proposition in today’s online paper is that the Italian will only join us if he gets to keep Harry Kane and is given sufficient funds to rebuild the side.

Whilst this sounds fabulous – it bears no relation to what has happened previously with Spurs coaches. Pochettino wasn’t backed as the squad began to age for several windows and whilst Mourinho was gifted Pierre Højbjerg, he also had to suffer an unfit Bale, Gedson Fernandes, and Matt Doherty.

I take a view that this is a rumour from the Sun which is highly unlikely to happen in full as the money simply isn’t there. Spurs have borrowed from the Bank of England in order to maintain operating costs and financially are the most challenged they have been in my lifetime.

Levy must be coming to the sobering realisation that a fancy stadium needs a fancy team and doing it ‘on the cheap’ no longer cuts it… no wonder he enquired about bringing back a manager that did quite well doing it on the cheap. Levy really has no shame…

None of this makes any sense. All these sources, all these managers, all this money. Has anyone ever actually taken the time to look at the likelihood of any of these fantasies coming to pass? This just all feels like clickbait designed to drive desperate Spurs fans to websites as we pray for a miracle that ain’t coming.

As regards a big war chest from Levy, as they say, I’ll believe it when I actually see it!

We broke Jose & we’ll break Conte, another successful manager. Imagine Levy saying to Joe next year, ‘sorry Godfather, I know you entrusted me with the smooth running of the good ship Tottenham but I’m sacking another manager & his entourage so I need another 15 million to get rid of them’. Then we’ll see the return of Poch.

It’s all just setting us up for further mockery by rival fans.

So we have one headline from news now… sorry ! Bruce Grove that tells us wherever Conti goes, Lukaku follows. Then we have Conti demands Levy keeps Kane.

Two things spring to mind here. We finally have two proper strikers. (Unlikely) Or, it’s a slow news day and journo’s are getting their 5 year olds to write headlines for them whilst they go down the pub.

Levy is being backed further and further into a corner and the results of his bad decision making and general bad running of the club will be there for all to see.

Levy backed into a corner. He had the right plan, buy low sell high, a long term manager will to build the project. Said manager got ample time with young kiddy playees accepting increments of payment as reward and they failed to win. Poch los his way and Kane could not stay heathy enough for any finals or to keep the momentum to sustain a title chase. Here we are pretending Kane does no have a hand in him to winning a title.

This alleged war chest – where is the money coming from? Have things got so bad that Lewis has broken into his safe finally?

Any money will be from player sales and stadium naming rights. If Conte doesn’t come then I guess he was offered the same transfer kitty as Mourinho and knows you don’t challenge City and Chelsea on those terms.

So it’s confirmed then, we’re plying in the PG Tips Stadium. As for players sales we’ll most likely have to pay somebody to take them, with the sole exception of Kane of course.

The funds available for transfers will be comparable to the money generated from the sale of a dinghy, more likely.

Just done a tour of newspapers, social media and YouTube.

The silence on Conte is deafening.

All the ‘done deals’ of yesterday are gone.

The bank of England loan has been repaid in full following the £250million debt placement that occurred last month.

Assuming a full season with average attendances the cash flow could throw off in excess of £100 million, post all financial commitments including debt repayments, which are scheduled over 10-60 years.

Hopeful sign, Levy must be confident fairly normal services will be resumed shortly.
Though I think Arsenal have already done the same, not sure if Liverpool have repaid.

Money either comes from player sales or the stadium naming rights or a combination of both.

Show me the money, that’s what Conte should ask or he’s wasting his time.

Conte and Levy in the same club – have you ever heard of anything so bizarre? If Conte thinks he’s not been supported at other clubs then he’s seen nothing yet. The relationship will be more combustible than petrol and fire. The only possible good outcome I can see is that in a fit of madness he might strangle Levy.
