Daniel Levy must be exhausted, virtually every day he wakes up to find something else that’s gone horribly wrong. This morning the news has emerged that things weren’t much better for him back in February either with David Kent for Sportsmail suggesting that Tottenham made an enquiry about Borussia Dortmund forward Erling Haaland, the bad news was that Bundesliga star is thought to want £350,000 a week.
In truth, Levy could afford this – but again the Penury Myth will be wheeled out again. Kane is on £200,000 a week and Bale is hoovering up another £325,000, so if the Welshman were to be returned to sender after the Leicester City game, then there would be able resources to engage someone of Haaland’s calibre. The question remains then, just how committed are Spurs to offering value for money? Watching us minus Harry Kane is a completely different proposition, to watching us with the England captain in our team.
