Paratici’s stance is stalling Tottenham’s move for defender
By Bruce Grove -

Tottenham’s move for Bologna defender, Takehiro Tomiyasu, has taken longer than most of us would have expected after they started talks over signing him earlier in the transfer window.

The Japanese star is keen to make the move to London this summer and he is only waiting for both clubs to reach an agreement.

Tottenham looked to be making good progress in their bid to sign him in the last few weeks, but it seems that is no longer the case with a new report suggesting that the deal has stalled because of Fabio Paratici.

Corriere dello Sport, as reported by Sport Witness claims that Bologna wants more money than Tottenham is offering.

It says the new Spurs’ football director, Fabio Paratici is not willing to dance to the tune of the Italians with the report claiming that he is unwilling to bid up to 25m euros for the versatile defender.

This has stalled the move and Spurs are now moving ahead with moves for their other transfer targets.

After appearing like a very promising piece of business, this transfer now appears dead in the water but Spurs will not want to lose signing a player they think will add value to their squad over some financial differences.

We can expect them to return with another offer to sign him.

Change the motto, nothing changes at Spurs.

Change the crest, nothing changes at Spurs.

Change the DoF, nothing changes at Spurs.

Change the scouting, nothing changes at Spurs.

Change the players, nothing changes at Spurs.

Change the manager, nothing changes at Spurs.

Change the stadium, nothing changes at Spurs.

It’s a Daniel Levy engineered cesspit, and no amount of glitter and tinsel is going to alter that.

Decent 1st half…Skipp looks a world apart from Winks….Dele has been average…back line looks dodgy but not really the 1st team…some good attacking football, be it a league 2 side..

I think we’d have a good shout for some hardware if we played in League 2.

I’m actually impressed with Colchester, they are doing well…our back line needs investment urgently….

If we’re going to play strictly attacking football we need more guys that can fill the onion bag not more CBs as we already have Dier, Sanchez, Rodon, Toby, Japhet, Davies and some kids.

Just kidding.

Wasn’t it said (by most sites) at the beginning that he wouldn’t be signed till after or the end of his involvement in the Olympics?
Maybe no need for doom & gloom just yet?

Triffic stuff. Paratici doing exactly the job he was brought in for….to take the heat off Levy. The buffer. Is it Paratici who holds the purse strings?? No. Its the chairman. He’s just there to take the heat. What a joke.

Get the deal done.

One sentence the deal is “dead in the water”, the next you’re saying we can expect Tottenham to return with a new offer. Which is it, Bruce?

it’s unlikely to be Paratici reluctant to handover more cash. I can imagine when he’s negotiating he has to make a quick call to Levy to check if the price is acceptable.

I know it’s frowned upon to not criticise Levy in here but I imagine it has far more to do with Paratici eyeing up moves for Romero and Kounde as premier options that he would prefer to allocate resources towards. We know Paratici likes to deal with several targets simultaneously, only to choose his preferred options later in the day. I imagine it comes with risks but he’s no novice. If Kounde and Romero start to become less likely, I imagine you’ll see Tomiyasu becoming more likely. Is he a player we should be buying at all costs? No.

Real point. Tired of every snifle is dumping on Levy. Now he gets someone to do the job and he is now being looked at as though he knows nothing even with his experience. We need outgoing, but to be fair to Paratici, there are no value to the people to be move and that is on Levy shoulders. We cannot bring in anymore marginal players to add to the deadwoods. We cannot make a deal now for the sake of it because everyones coffee are getting cold.

On another note, Tomiyasu is not worth 25 million given the like of Lacroix and Milenkovic are available for the same. But yes, it’s easier to blame Daniel Levy.
