Report: Spurs Agree £42M+ Transfer Deal
By Harry Hotspur -

Bergamo Corriere is confident that Cristian Romero is soon to be officially announced as a Tottenham player.

This breaking news from Italy will ask more questions about Tottenham’s transfer finances, as the incoming money and the outgoing money currently don’t match up.

Here are the current outgoings

€42 million Cristian Romero

€25 million Bryan Gill

£13 million Pierluigi Gollini

Here are the current incomings

£13 million Juan Foyth

£10 million Toby Alderweireld

In theory, the incomings might be drastically bumped with the sale of just one or two of the unhelpfully named ‘deadwood’ players, but only if Daniel Levy can get what he perceives as full whack.

At this present moment in time, Tottenham’s budget is a ball-park figure well over £50 million in the red.

Romero looks to be a good bet, as these clips of his long passing and his aggressive, pressing nature indicate. Naturally, this is all subject to the usual concerns about changing from one league to another and so forth.

Will be interesting to see if another striker comes in, if so then Kane going would be almost certain.

That would depend on the quality of the striker we try to sign, the more we spend the more likely Kane is off, however I hope it’s Ings to play alongside him .

A £13 million loan? That would make Gollini one of the most expensive loan deals in the history of football, no?

2 years bud!!! You cannot sign a top notch keeper for that. Backstopper is not an immediate need. The dead weights in front are. Lloris will leave on a free next year, then Spurs can go out and sign a #1. Make sense to me.

This is all pointing to a last-minute sale of Kane, leaving Nuno with egg on his face and Levy with excess money into his and Uncle Joe’s pockets.

I think you are missing the point. Nuno is merely following the ‘company line’. If Harry, as I suspect, is going to be sold, the truth of the sale will be vehemently denied by THFC right up until the time he is actually sold, probably on deadline day.

The reason is obvious, Levy does not want to be held to ransom by clubs we are buying from and he can only plausibly maintain his usual poverty pleading charade, if the news of Kane’s imminent departure is suppressed.

Nuno will be well aware if Harry is going to be sold, but will forward the company line in the meantime. Which may also explain why we are pursuing deals with greater urgency than usual. Levy wants to complete our incoming business before the Kane sale is officially consummated.

If the report turns out to be ‘on the money’, it may hopefully be viewed in hindsight as an outstanding acquisition. This boy at 23 is still young for a centre-half and has already shown considerable promise and a winning pedigree, with both Argentina and an over-achieving Atalanta outfit. You don’t win ‘defender of the year’ in Serie ‘A’ without having some serious defensive credibility.

However, if Toby’s imminent departure (regrettable, but great money considering his age) is also correct, plus the widely reported plan to offload Sanchez, (hopefully Dier as well – we can but dream!), then another CB will be needed. This opens the door for the Kounde deal, with Davinson as the makeweight, which would be terrific transfer business by Paratici and genuinely transform our defence.

On top of the above, if Aurier is shifted also as seems highly likely and the Japanese boy brought in, who is a reported 6′ 2″ and can also play CB, then we will have completely restructured our defence with top quality young internationals and not a one over the age of 23. Yes, there would be growing pains, but with the prospect of a formidable young defence if they all grow together and reach their potential.

However, as H has pointed out also, this amount of outlay would not be countenanced by Levy without the sale of one H. Kane, with possibly a stadium naming rights deal as an additional source of funds. Therefore, our attack will also need radical surgery. Gil, Damsgard, plus a striker. Ings is not a sexy name, but he is a proven commodity, knows where the net is and at around 20 mill would be shrewd business.

Ings is injury prone so we could with a back up striker too in that scenario if Kane goes. One’s things for sure this money ins’t coming from the generosity of enic or Lewis.

Once again Gollini is loan. No transfer fee yet. Any sight of Gil? Swaps are notoriously difficult.

Sanchez will go… somewhere. That could be £30m+

It’s not just the case of ins and outs but how they are structured if they are over 4-5 years as normal then the monies received will certainly help maybe incoming are on less than toby and lamala aa well as the stadium rights money of £20m if it’s true
