Legendary football agent Pini Zahavi met this week with Toby Alderwiereld to discuss the player’s possible post-Tottenham future.
Toby’s agents are Stirr Associates who have a mission statement that one can imagine appealing to our Toby.
‘At Stirr Associates we give you that control. Coming from a background as lawyers, we inform our clients of the whole truth. Full disclosure, so you know what really goes on in the world of so-called agents, clubs and transfers. But also completely confidential and professional within a long-term vision. Because we actually look further than your next transfer.’
So Zahavi met with the our 29 year old in his frequent capacity as ‘fixer’.
For whom, is the killer question.
Israeli Zahavi has more fingers in more pies than that little Jack horner guy.
The Harry Hotspur blog was told this week that the odds of Alderweireld still being a Tottenham player in the summer are ‘negligible’.
Spurs have recently taken options on the contracts of both Toby and Jan Vertonghen.
Regrettably, this is not good news.
This is the heralding of another couple of cash sellouts by ENIC.
This the heads-up before further attempt to squeeze the pips out of Mauricio Pochettino’s talent – by replacing class with ‘prospects’.
