Football finance expert Dan Plumley claims Daniel Levy has pulled off some lovely business using the sale of Harry Kane to Bayern Munich.
Daniel Levy is known for being a tough negotiator, a trait which is much hated by other clubs.
The Kane saga went on for the entire summer for this same reason as Levy refused to budge from the asking price for his star striker and allowed very little flexibility before ultimately agreeing on a deal worth £100m.
And now more details have emerged regarding the deal which suggests that Levy got himself even more financial benefits from it.
It was previously reported by Abend Zeitung that Bayern agreed to play two friendlies with Spurs as part of the deal. And all proceeds from the match will go to Tottenham. When and where these matches will be played remains to be revealed.
Finance expert Dan Plumley claims that these revelations come as no surprise given the reputation of the Tottenham chairman.
He told Tottenham News:
“Lovely little bit of shrewd business within a negotiation.”
“It is no surprise to see that it is Spurs because we know how Daniel Levy and we know he is a good negotiator.
“It’s just a bonus all around, I’m sure they will be high-profile friendlies, and I’m sure they may be in all places of the world when we get further details but it’s a good little piece of business for Spurs to build that in.
“If they were going to lose Harry Kane then good for them to get as much out of the deal as possible.”
Not only did Levy coup £100m for a striker on his last year of contract with the club, he also managed to reap future financial benefits for the club as well.
Despite his long service and contributions to the club, some Tottenham fans have often expressed frustration with Levy’s approach to spending and financial management and the club’s lack of progress under his leadership.
But recent decisions from Levy have proven to be brilliant.
The signing of Ange Postecoglou has been a masterstroke considering he was the least popular name among those linked.
The summer recruitments were on point with almost every single player coming in and making an instant impact.
And he has also reportedly stepped back a bit and allowed new sporting director Johan Lange and new chief football officer Scott Munn more freedom in decisions.
The way things are going, Tottenham fan can remain excited about the future.
